Washington County Sheriff Martin Schulteis Endorses Jim Piwowarczyk for Assembly

Washington County Sheriff Martin Schulteis endorsed former law enforcement officer Jim Piwowarczyk for state Assembly, saying Piwowarczyk has a “proven track record of advocating for public safety throughout the entire state.”

“As the chief law enforcement officer in Washington County, I fully endorse Jim as our next representative in Assembly District 98,” Schulteis said. “He has a clear understanding of the challenges facing local law enforcement, and a proven track record of advocating for public safety throughout the entire state.”

According to Schulteis, “Jim has demonstrated a genuine commitment to serving his constituents’ best interests with integrity, empathy, and respect.” The sheriff noted, “As sheriff, I endorse candidates who are dedicated to collaborating with local public safety with the desire to create safer neighborhoods for all. Jim is that individual.”

Piwowarczyk thanked Schulteis for his endorsement. “I am thrilled to have the endorsement of Sheriff Schulteis,” Piwowarczyk said. “He is a respected sheriff who works hard to protect the citizens of Washington County and I looked forward to work with him to advance common-sense legislation to help do the same in the state Legislature.”

The primary is Aug. 13.
