To the editor:
I write to offer my support for Todd Hood. I’ve known Todd for many years and believe he would serve Madison County well as sheriff.
During my time as a federal prosecutor, I had the opportunity to work alongside Todd on the Syracuse Gang Violence Task Force for nearly 10 years. I witnessed firsthand his service and sacrifice.
A 23-year veteran of the Syracuse Police Department, Todd is a dedicated member of local law enforcement and an outstanding public servant who is committed to keeping our community safe. An experienced SWAT Team leader, Todd has put his own life on the line to keep others out of harm’s way.
Longtime residents of Madison County, Todd and his wife Kelley have raised their family in our community and are committed to making Upstate New York a better place to live.
Madison County would be well-served with Todd Hood as its sheriff, and I am proud to support his candidacy.
