With Sheriff Steve Delwarwelle choosing not to seek re-election, Door County residents will have the choice between two seasoned veterans from the department when they go to the polls next month to determine the county’s next sheriff. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty is running as a Republican while Lieutenant Tammy Sternard is on the Democratic side. McCarty says his years on patrol and as deputy sheriff make him uniquely qualified for the position.
Sternard says her background and experience in administration while working 25 years in the sheriff’s department makes her the best person for the job.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6. This is the first in a series on the Door County Sheriff’s race.
