Saratoga County Sheriff candidate dies unexpectedly.

Jerome HollandSaratoga County and City Democrats mourn the loss of our friend and endorsed Sheriff candidate Jerry Holland. Jerome Holland, a retired state trooper who lived in Clifton Park, died suddenly on Sunday, April 11, his obituary noted. The 64-year-old had a 35-year career with the police as a senior investigator. After retiring, he worked for the state Senate as its sergeant-at-arms and then as an office manager at Guarded Exchange in Albany. Holland would have been the first Black candidate to run for sheriff in Saratoga County. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.

Jerome Holland’s funeral took place on April 16. From the obituary: Jerome’s family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to his fellow brothers and sisters with the New York State Police for their assistance, care and love during this most difficult time.

Those desiring, may make memorial contributions to Clifton Park Girls Basketball, 26 Deer Run Hollow, Clifton Park, NY 12065 or Coast to Coast Basketball, 24 Pine Hill Bend, Ballston Lake, NY 12019, in memory of Jerome Holland.
