Mike Montes for Onondaga County Sheriff

I am the Democratic Candidate for Sheriff for Onondaga County, NY. We are thrilled to announce that there will be no primary election. We are building momentum and Team Montes is ready to move forward and win in November!


Additionally, I have been endorsed by the Working Families Party and the Women's Equality Party.


We need change in this community. I have set out the following new initiatives for change in Onondaga County (Syracuse) New York


  • Protect the lives of those that live, work and visit Onondaga County - a balanced approach
  • Protect political and civil rights, and adamantly demand equal treatment under the law
  • Inspire on-going communication, collaboration and coordination with community leaders to solve real problems  
  • Transform, reorganize and restructure the Onondaga County Justice Center and Jamesville Correctional to exceed New York requirements
  • Immediately cease the use of solitary confinement of children in county facilities
  • Inspire, encourage and support a highly trained work force
  • Demand for strict fiscal responsibility
  • Accountability, Transparency, and Integrity


I decided to run for Sheriff for many reasons including my friends and family, my love for this great nation, but most importantly, my desire to serve my community. After 27 years as a Federal Agent and over 19 years as a Navy Reservist, I can see many ways to vastly improve the lives of all residents of Onondaga County as Sheriff. My training, education, and experience has provided me the strong leadership skills to transform the Onondaga County Sheriff Department. I am poised and ready to provide my vision and leadership to the people of Onondaga County.


I will bring the Onondaga County Sheriff Department to the next level to protect ALL people of this amazing Central New York community. If you share my vision, I need your financial help to make this a reality.
