With the Primary Election only 3 days away, we wanted to show appreciation for everyone that helped us get to this point.
Once Jim announced his campaign, there was so much support that helped us gain momentum. We appreciate everyone that endorsed, donated, and supported our campaign to get Jim elected as your next Merrimack County Sheriff.
And a special thanks to all of our friends that left us such thoughtful and meaningful endorsements!

Thank you for your support, Earl Sweeney, who said of Jim’s experience and character when he heard Jim was running for Merrimack County Sheriff, “Throughout your career I have observed many instances where you have gone above and beyond your sworn duties to contribute to the people of your communities (Exeter, Newbury, and now Bradford) and to all of New Hampshire law enforcement as well, with leadership roles as head of the Central New Hampshire SWAT unit, a term as President of the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, and as a founder of the Police, Fire and EMS charitable foundation. I have also noticed that in every community where you have worked, you have established a positive relationship with the fire department and emergency medical teams, working in unison to help save lives and property. On top of that, you are a devoted husband and father, espousing family values and moderation in your personal life.”
Thank you again, Don Vittum, who said, “When asked for permission to publish his support Don said “Any time! You are an outstanding professional and a great chief of police! I truly believe that the citizens will see those qualities as we all did when you were the president of association!””
Thank you kindly, Neal Janvrin, who says about Jim, “He has always proven to be fair and firm. We have not always thought the same way, but the ability to communicate was always his strong suit and we have always worked out the kinks. There is no one more qualified to be Sheriff. If I was a resident of your county he would have my vote.”
Thank you again to, Michael Pearl, who says in his endorsement and letter to the editor, “His character will flourish in the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Department and take it to the next level.”
