Democratic candidate for sheriff in Lawrence Co. is promoted

Adamo is now the county jail warden.
NEW CASTLE, Pa. -- Perry Quahliero, a Democratic candidate for Lawrence County sheriff, has been promoted to a lieutenant in the county sheriff's office.
Quahliero, previously a full-time deputy sheriff, replaces former opponent Charles H. Adamo. Adamo recently resigned from the sheriff's office to accept the warden's post at the county jail.
At their weekly meeting Tuesday, commissioners said Sheriff Robert L. Clark promoted Quahliero, effective Aug. 22. Quahliero's annual salary was set at $28,374 for the full-time position.
Meanwhile, as Adamo settles into his new job at the jail, Quahliero continues working in the sheriff's office and campaigning for the sheriff's seat.
The two men shared a common goal when they both ran in the Democratic race for the sheriff's seat in May. In July, after a series of recounts, Adamo conceded the Democratic nomination to Quahliero.
Quahliero will face Republican Thomas L. Wharry in November's general election.
Clark, who is not seeking re-election, moved David McBride from a part-time to a full-time deputy sheriff's position to replace Quahliero. McBride is to be paid $26,374 a year.
