After eight years of serving Orange County, Sheriff C. G. Feldman said he will not seek another term.

Feldman announced his retirement this morning standing alongside the man he hopes will replace him.

Chief Deputy Lt. Colonel Mark Amos said he will run for the position.

Amos is a lifetime resident of Orange County and has worked his way up the ranks of the department over the last 20 years.

“He is probably one of the best young men, and I am going to call him a young man. He is probably ten years my junior, that I have ever worked with. He'll take the bull by the horns. There has never been anything he has not been able to do here at the office,” Feldman said of Amos.

“I would like to thank the sheriff for the service he has done since '92, so the past 15 years. He's going to be some big shoes to follow,” said Amos.

The sheriff's retirement is effective August 1st, 2007. Feldman said he plans on traveling, fishing and spending time with his family.
