FAIRFIELD — Solano County Sheriff Tom Ferrara has promoted Capt. Gary Elliott to be the undersheriff as one of several moves for the Sheriff’s Office.

Ferrara previously held that post under Sheriff Gary Stanton. Stanton retired Nov. 1 and the county Board of Supervisors appointed Ferrara as sheriff.

Elliott began his career with the Sheriff’s Office in 1989 as a correctional officer. The office hired him as deputy sheriff in 1991, promoted him to sergeant in 2001, lieutenant in 2006 and captain in 2010. His most recent assignments were working as custody division commander and being commander of the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team., a sheriff’s press release said.

Lt. Gary Faulkner has been promoted to captain and will replace Elliott as the custody division commander. His tasks will include managing the new jail being built on Clay Bank Road. Faulkner began his career with the Sheriff’s Office in 1994 as a deputy sheriff, became sergeant in 2002 and lieutenant in 2008, the press release said.

Ferrara also promoted Angelica Russell to be the office’s director of administrative services. She replaces Michael Medvedoff, who recently announced his retirement. Russell began her career with the Sheriff’s Office in 1996 as an accountant and became staff analyst in 1998, senior staff analyst in early 2000 and administrative services manager in late 2000.

  • The County Sheriff: America's Last HopeNovember 17, 2012 - 9:27 pm

    The County Supervisors, everyone in the Sheriffs Dept and all citizens should read this small book....The County Sheriff:America's Last Hope by Richard Mack...From Amazon reviews...This easy to read pamphlet reminds us that the Sheriff is the supreme law enforcement authority in every county or parish of these United States. In it Richard Mack shows irrefutable evidence from case law, common law, the Constitution, and common sense that the People's protector is the ONE they actually elect. The Sheriff promises to serve, to protect, and to defend them from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Sheriffs are the only people who can call the militias (in the truest sense of the word) which is a group of citizen volunteers like the posses, into service for a particular outcome. As such, the Sheriff is the only locally elected official who has the jurisdiction, the authority, and especially the duty to protect the citizens from threatening federal entities or federal agents. The Sheriffs has local sovereignty to uphold the Constitution............. In the case Mack/Prince versus the United States, Justice Scalia told the Federal Government, "The Federal Government may neither issue Federal directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States' Officers or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a Federal regulatory program." So, the question is, does nationalized health care qualify as a Federal regulatory program? The answer is that the States and the local authorities and jurisdictions do NOT have to participate in Obama's nationalized health care program. Such commands are FUNDAMENTALLY incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty................ As for the fiasco in the San Joachin Valley where the Environmental Protection Agency turned off the irrigation canals in order to study the little minnow fish, the Sheriffs of those 25 Counties affected by these regulations would do well to read this short little book. This shutting off of the water has led to 80,000 jobs lost, the loss of half of the fruits, nuts, and vegetables coming from California, and the destruction of countless legal immigrant family farms. Sheriffs and citizens should educate themselves as to what authority and rights they do have by law.
