Sheriff’s Detective Lt. Brian Schenck officially kicked off his campaign for Cayuga County Sheriff at the Springside Inn on Thursday evening.
The 20-year Sheriff’s Office veteran is seeking to succeed Sheriff David Gould, who announced his retirement on Monday. Schenck will seek the Republican endorsement. County Democrats have not announced if they will nominate a candidate to oppose the head of the detective bureau.
County Coroner Dr. Adam Duckett also was also on hand on Thursday evening to announce he’ll seek another 4-year term in November.
In addition to his private practice and coroner duties, Dr. Duckett recently joined the Sheriff’s Office medical staff.
