Sgt. Garofalo announce bid for sheriff
Colusa County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Joe Garofalo is the first candidate to officially announce his intention to run for sheriff in 2014.
Garofalo announced Tuesday that he would be running for office. Candidates have until March 7 to file for candidacy.
Garofalo, a lifelong Colusa resident, has worked for the Sheriff's Department for almost 18 years, and has been a sergeant since 2007.
"This is something I've been planning for the last four years now," Garofalo said. "I plan to improve our small-town way of life by working with youth and schools, in addition to working with the ag industry to create some type of networking system for local farmers, to reduce ag crime."
