Candidate for Erie County Sheriff calls for Sheriff Tim Howard’s immediate removal


(WIVB ) – One of the men running for Erie County Sheriff is calling for Gov. Cuomo’s office to remove Sheriff Tim Howard from office- now.

In February, Myles Carter unveiled his campaign.

On Monday, he and his supporters held a press conference outside the Erie County Holding Center in downtown Buffalo.

Carter says he is outraged over the recent death on an inmate inside the facility.

One of the men running to be the next sheriff of Erie County is calling on the governor’s office to remove Sheriff Tim Howard from office.

“Every 6 months someone is dying in this building,” Carter said. “It is March. If we allow Sheriff Howard to stay in office- someone in this building statistically will die before his term is over.

Carter says justice and equality are two focal points on which he is basing his campaign for sheriff.
