Lonnie Marcyes announces run for Todd County Sheriff

Todd County Sheriff’s Deputy Lonnie Marcyes recently announced his run for Todd County sheriff. The Fergus Falls college graduate has more than 11 years of experience as both a deputy and officer in Long Prairie, Staples and Eagle Bend.

In addition, Maryces served as school liaison officer, is a member of the snowmobile patrol and volunteers for the Browerville firearms safety class.

“As your sheriff, you can be sure that I will be involved with our community and build relationships between the people and my office. I am committed to leadership and integrity,” Marcyes said. “Fiscal responsibility, interactive community meetings, continued criminal interdiction training for deputies and increasing drug-related arrests are priorities.”

Marcyes said he’s received support from within the sheriff’s office and community leaders.

“I understand the many costs that face our county,” Marcyes said. “I will be mindful of how taxpayer dollars are being spent while being diligent and focused on the safety of our citizens.”

A lifelong resident of Todd County, Marcyes graduated from Long Prairie-Grey Eagle High School and earned his degree in criminal justice from Fergus Falls Community College in 2002.

He is married to Chelsea and has two children, ages 2 and 7.
