WHITESTOWN — Current Oneida County Sheriff Robert M. Maciol officially announced his bid for re-election on Tuesday. He will likely be running unopposed.

Maciol will be running on the Democratic and Conservative party lines. Maciol first ran and won for sheriff in 2010 and has held the position since January 1, 2011.

“We have made great strides during my tenure as sheriff,”  Maciol said in a release.

“However, from rising violent crimes, to the debilitating effects of illegal drugs, along with the many obstacles created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing unprecedented challenges. It has truly been an honor to serve as your sheriff — but our job is not done, which is why I’m asking for your vote once again.”

In addition to his work in Oneida County, Maciol is a recent past president of the New York State Sheriff’s Association and currently serves on the Association’s Executive Committee. Maciol is also a Chairman of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Law Enforcement Foundation; Member of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Accreditation Council; Member of the New York State Civil Service Police Exam Review Committee (PERC); and Member of a Fatality Review Team for the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence.

Maciol also belongs to the NY Farm Bureau, NAACP, Sons of the American Legion Post 1376, is an honorary member of the Polish League of American Veterans, is a lifetime member of the New York Mills Volunteer Fire Department, Firemen’s Association of the State of New York and the New York Mills Historical Society.
