Solano County Board of Supervisors face replacing sheriff

A 40-year career of working for Solano County will come to a close this fall for Sheriff Gary Stanton, but how to replace him will be the focus of some discussion on Tuesday.

Stanton announced his retirement in June and on Tuesday the Solano County Board of Supervisors will consider how to go about filling his post. The board will be asked to accept Stanton's resignation letter, and to appoint Undersheriff Tom Ferrara to fill the term until it expires in 2014.

In a letter to Supervisor Linda Seifert, chair of the board, Stanton said his last day will be Oct. 31.

"The Sheriff's Office is operationally sound and my retirement will marginally and only temporarily influence departmental operations and capabilities," he wrote in the letter. "Retirement is a huge milestone, and I have given retirement considerable thought. I have decided to retire simply because it is the right time for me to do so."
