SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 03, 2017
A debate which took place between Suffolk County Sheriff candidates Larry Zacarese and Errol Toulon Jr. for the $194,243-a-year job saw both candidates take aim at each other to highlight who was the better candidate. Although Larry Zacarese became confident after the debate that he had done enough to convince voters he was the man for the job, many of those who witnessed were not convinced.
Zacarese, who believes his police background as assistant chief of the Stony Brook University police gave him the experience needed to become the new Suffolk Sheriff, was quick to criticize Errol Toulon Jr.'s late entry in the race for the position. However, this backfired when many of those in attendance were impressed with Toulon's experience and his plans for the role, which included reducing crime and putting more resources towards Suffolk County's opioid epidemic.
Although Larry Zacarese has been in the race longer than Errol Toulon Jr. and has been confident from day one, it seems after the debate that his confidence may be misguided. Many of those who were convinced Zacarese was the right man to take the position before the debate, left the meeting convinced Errol Toulon Jr. could become one of the most successful and effective Sheriffs in recent history. The Suffolk County Conservative Party has endorsed Toulon as their candidate for the job.
With Errol Toulon Jr.'s strong opinions, qualifications and positive attitude, it seems like the two-horse race to become the next Suffolk County Sheriff could now become a one-horse race which would benefit the whole community.
