Colusa County DSA and the Sacramento River Fire Association Endorses Joe Garofalo for Sheriff

Lifelong Colusa County public servant Joe Garofalo has been endorsed for Sheriff by the Colusa County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, the Association’s first ever endorsement in a competitive race.

“With his distinguished career and long list of accomplishments, there is no finer public servant and future Sheriff for Colusa County than Joe,” said CCDSA President Mike Bradwell.

“As President of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association I am proud to say we publicly and firmly support Joe Garofalo to be Colusa County’s next Sheriff.”

The endorsement is the first in nearly two decades from the Deputy Sheriff’s Association, and adds to Garofalo’s growing list of well-over 500 supporters which include local citizens, organizations, public safety officers and elected officials.

“I am proud to have earned the support of the Colusa County Deputy Sheriff’s Association,” said Garofalo. “The DSA has always been a great supporter of this community and I look forward to working hard to protect the citizens of Colusa County as the next Sheriff.”

Additionally, Garofalo has received an endorsement for Sheriff by the Sacramento River Fire Association.

The SRFA’s endorsement compliments Garofalo’s growing list of public safety endorsements, which include the Colusa Police Officers Association, the Colusa Rural Firefighters Association, and the Arbuckle Volunteer Firefighter Association. Garofalo has received the unanimous support of the Colusa City Council, and adds to his impressive list of well-over 500 supporters.

I want to thank the SRFA for their generous support,” said Garofalo. “With the backing of several local public safety organizations, this campaign is bringing this community together to promote public safety and protect our residents in the years to come.”

With almost two decades of service in law enforcement and a lifetime of service to Colusa County, Joe is uniquely qualified to serve as the next Sheriff. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from California State University Sacramento, Garofalo returned to Colusa County and became a Correctional Officer. While working full-time, Joe attended the Yuba Police Academy on nights and weekends to become a Deputy Sheriff. As a Deputy Sheriff, he accepted several assignments including Field Training Officer, School Resource Officer, Detective, and S.W.A.T. team. Since 2007 Joe has served as a Sergeant where he has supervised numerous facets of the Department including patrol, communications, training, and the Office of Emergency Services.

For nearly twenty years, Garofalo has been working to protect the region’s youth, residents, and business owners against the criminals who cause them harm. As Sheriff, Garofalo will look to increase efficiency within the department, reinstate meaningful youth programs, and crack down on rural and agricultural crime.
