Sheriff Cary sits down with the Madison County Eagle

After his official Aug. 25 announcement to retire from his post at the Madison County Sheriff's Department, Sheriff Ronald I. Cary sat down with the Madison County Eagle today to talk about the journey.

Sheriff Cary, 55, has lived in and around Madison County his while life and has "been honored to serve the county" for 32 years, 18 years as sheriff.

{Q}"Will I miss it?" Sheriff Cary asked aloud. "Yeah, I'm going to miss it."{Q}

Although he looks forward to retiring and spending more time with family, Sheriff Cary said he will miss the great staff he has worked with for so many years. He said that it's been wonderful to have the community re-elect him for so many terms. Sheriff Cary was openly affiliated and endorsed by the republican and conservative parties, but that he felt a union with the whole community because he was unopposed for the last four elections.

A few people have come forward in hopes to run for the sheriff's position, but Undersheriff Doug Bailey will take over during the gap between the Nov. 3 election and Cary's last day on Sept. 18 if Governor Dave Paterson doesn't appoint someone else.

Look for more of the one-on-one interview with Sheriff Cary tomorrow on www.cnylink.com and in the Sept. 2 issue of the Madison County Eagle Newspaper.
