As a Summit County resident since I was five years old, a graduate of Springfield High School, a Summit County Deputy Sheriff and now a Captain in the Sheriff’s Office, I have a deep appreciation for our great community.
That appreciation has led me to commit most of my life to keeping our residents safe and secure, ensuring justice for all, and working for more efficient and responsive law enforcement. I respectfully ask for your support in my effort to serve as your Summit County Sheriff.
“OUR SHERIFF'S OFFICE
SHOULD LOOK LIKE THE
COMMUNITY IT SERVES.”

EARNED MY WAY
As a single mother, I started as a Deputy and worked my way to Sergeant, then Lieutenant, to Commander and am currently a Captain. I'm the only candidate that is still working in the Sherriff's office.
"As a Captain with 28 years of experience, Kandy understands that the Dignity of Work is not just a slogan, it's how we govern -- that's why I'm proud to endorse Kandy Fatheree for Summit County Sheriff.""

Since becoming a Summit County Deputy Sheriff in 1995, I have had the privilege of working in every department of the Sheriff's Office, from the County Jail and Court Security to Civil Process Commander and managing the Sheriff's Office budget for three years. That's the broad range of experience that we need to get the job done.
