Darryl Sehm For LeRoy Town Justice
Submitted by Darryl Sehm on November 1, 2009 - 5:21pm
My name is Darryl Sehm and I am seeking the position of LeRoy Town Justice in the upcoming November 3rd election.
I have lived quietly in LeRoy for over 40 years and recently retired from a 34 year career in Law Enforcement. I served 7 years as a Police Officer, 13 years as a Detective, 10 years as a Detective Sergeant, and the last 4 and 1/2 years as Chief of Police.
It was an honor and a privilege helping people in the community with their problems on
a daily basis. It was very satisfying to be able to resolve conflicts, solve crimes and help restore some sense of order to victims' lives.
I still have a strong desire to serve the public. As I neared retirement I contemplated the idea of running for Town Justice sometime in the future. This would allow me to continue to serve the public, except this time I would be able to serve the community in which I live. This would provide me an opportunity to give something back to LeRoy.
If elected, I pledge to protect the rights of the people, be a stabilizing presence in LeRoy Town Court, and to be fair and impartial in the administration of justice.
I was just recently endorsed by the Genesee County Deputy Sheriff's Association. These are the road patrol Deputies that work throughout the County, including the Town of LeRoy and who assist the Village of LeRoy Police. I was honored by their support and I feel it clearly demonstrates their faith in my ability to serve as a LeRoy Town Justice. That being said, I feel it is my obligation to hold all police to a high standard in court if I am elected.
During this campaign, I have knocked on the doors of over 2,000 residences in LeRoy. It has been an honor to listen to the questions and opinions of so many people on their doorstep.
I would greatly appreciate your support on Tuesday, November 3rd.
