Sobieraski would bring needed change in fighting crime, which doesn’t stop at county lines

Posted 13 June 2019 at 7:45 am


I write this in regard to the letter sent in to the Orleans Hub by Bob Harker or Clarendon. He states that Sgt. Sobieraski had dealt with issues in urban areas and not rural areas. Well now Mr. Harker, exactly how far from Orleans County are the urban areas?

I have worked at the Monroe County Jail for the last 20 years, and I can safely say that crime does not stop at the county line. City and suburban crime does come to Orleans County. No longer can the residents of Orleans County say, “not here in my quiet neighborhood.”

People have got to get their heads out of the sand and realize that society and the crimes they commit have changed over the years.

Just because Sgt. Sobieraski has been employed for 27 years in the city, does not mean he is unaware of the problems we have in Orleans County. Sgt. Sobieraski will be a pro-active sheriff, not a reactive one.

Change can be hard, change can be good and in this election, change is what is needed.

P.S. Criminals don’t read or use road maps.

Thank you,
