Summit County sheriff’s captain will run for top job
Park City • Summit County Sheriff's Capt. Justin Martinez declared Wednesday he will run for sheriff in next year's election.
In an interview with The Park Record, Martinez said he has the "experience, training and knowledge to continue running a very effective Sheriff's Office."
Martinez, 44, who lives in Jeremy Ranch, has worked at the Sheriff's Office since 2005 and has been captain overseeing operations since 2012. If elected, he would succeed Dave Edmunds, the three-term sheriff who will not seek re-election next year. Martinez will run under the Democratic ticket.
