SHERIFF SAYS "DO MORE WITH LESS" IS THE NORM, NOT THE EXCEPTION--St.Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells told the St.Lawrence County Conservative Committee this week he has done his best to run mandated and essential services over decades of little to no growth, and higher-than-ever crime rates. This, in response to a question about what he would do if the county budget scenario becomes even tougher than it is now. For example, Wells says Road Patrol is one area that has seen no staffing increase in nearly 30 years, while incidents have gone up 2-5 percent a year, with more violent crime and ever-increasing disrespect for law enforcement. The Republican Wells announced recently he is running for a second four-year term; he has no announced opponent at this time.
