Walker challenges Wolfe for Malheur County sheriff’s seat

Casey Walker.

VALE – Brian Wolfe believes his experience and dedication qualify him to be reelected as Malheur County sheriff in May.

Casey Walker, a former sheriff’s deputy and current Ontario Police Department officer, said he believes he can provide the service county citizens deserve if he is elected sheriff.

Both men are gearing up to start their campaigns for the county’s top law enforcement slot, and Walker said change is needed at the sheriff’s office. The deadline to file to run for the position is March 10.

“There needs to be better service,” said Walker.

Walker previously worked for the sheriff’s office for 18 years, leaving to join the city agency two years ago.

 Walker said that as sheriff he would work to create 24-hour patrols for the county . . .
