Legislator: Joanie Mahoney rejects help for pistol permit office – Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney has rejected a request to add a position to the sheriff’s department’s over-burdened pistol permit office, a county legislator said today.  Kevin Holmquist, who chairs the Onondaga County Legislature’s Public Safety Committee, said the sheriff’s department needs the position to process a backlog of permits and privacy forms.  “She is inexplicably cutting the request for a full-time position, and I find this very disturbing,” said Holmquist, R-East Syracuse.
