Former Oklahoma County District Attorney Wes Lane today endorsed Brett Macy in the Republican primary for Oklahoma County sheriff.
“I’ve known Brett Macy for over 30 years and am thrilled that he is running for Oklahoma County Sheriff. He is an experienced lawman – a man of integrity and common sense,” said Lane, who currently serves as president of Salt and Light Leadership Training. “The citizens of Oklahoma County will be well served to have another Macy at the helm of law enforcement. I hope you will support him. I certainly do!”
Brett Macy’s father, Bob Macy, had a long and storied career as Oklahoma County District Attorney, but Brett took his own path in the world of law enforcement. He served on the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department from 1984 to 1989 and then served on the Oklahoma City Police Department from 1989 to 2014, rising to the rank of lieutenant.
Since the leaving the Oklahoma City force, Macy has run his own business as an investigative and financial crimes consultant, helping major financial institutions identify money laundering and other crimes. Since 2015, he has also served as a gubernatorial appointee on the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board.
“I worked hard throughout my law enforcement career to leave a legacy of integrity, and it is an honor to receive the support of someone as respected as Wes Lane, who served our county honorably for many years,” Macy said. “My promise to the citizens of Oklahoma County is that I will do what is needed to keep our community safe.”
The special-election Republican winner-take-all primary for Oklahoma County sheriff will be held April 4.
