Video: Erie County sheriff candidate Timothy Howard

Timothy Howard, the incumbent Republican sheriff, strongly opposes the state‚Äôs Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act and said he won't enforce the act. 

He says that conditions at the Erie County Holding Center are improving with the addition of more county resources, which led to the new $1.2 million reception housing area designed to streamline the whole assessment process for new inmates in the county jail.

Here is a video of interview and statements from the candidate:
