Peter Vroman, current undersheriff in Montgomery County, could potentially become the next Republican candidate to run for a seat in the state's 111th Assembly District.

"Not often do I have an opportunity to present to my committee such a fine public servant as Pete Vroman," said Joseph Emanuele, chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee. "Knowing that he has recently retired as a senior deputy U.S. marshal makes his candidacy very appealing."

Vroman confirmed his interest in campaigning for the Assembly seat on Tuesday.

"It's very early on and it came up after my appointment as undersheriff," he said. "So my first responsibility is to the sheriff, the department and the people of Montgomery County."

Vroman still doesn't know if he is going to be "the" Republican candidate to run, but he is thrilled and honored to be considered.

"I think with my experience in being involved in a large, 32-county district, it will allow me to be the best undersheriff I can be and to also run in a campaign," Vroman said.

As chairman of the county Republican Committee, Emanuele has already personally endorsed Vroman.

"One of the highlights of Peter is that he's not a politician and never has been a politician," Emanuele said. "He's coming into this very energetic, energized, and he brings a lot of public service to the table and I know people are looking for candidates who bring a new, fresh approach and new fresh ideas to the table."

While Vroman said his first and foremost duty is to fulfill his role as undersheriff, he is honored to be considered.

"I think this would be a continuation of my life in public service," Vroman said. "It would be a different path but one, if I do choose, that I would certainly love to do."

"I look forward to nothing but good things from Pete," Emanuele said.

Current Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, D-Rotterdam, was not available for comment on Tuesday.
