Statement from Saratoga County Republican Chairman Joe Whalen

On behalf of the entire Saratoga County Republican Committee, we offer our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the two sheriff’s deputies and their families who were shot today in Clifton Park. The selfless men and women of law enforcement put their lives on the line every day to serve and protect our families and they have our undying gratitude and respect.

We are encouraged that the most recent news on the officers is positive and we are praying for a full recovery for both. We are very fortunate to have outstanding law enforcement officials in Saratoga County, led by our Sheriff Michael Zurlo, and all the men and women of law enforcement have our full support.
