James Valiquet is a candidate for sheriff of Merrimack County and I am writing in support of his candidacy.
Jim has been Bradford’s chief of police for the past 16-plus years. During that time he has organized a highly efficient department. He has managed both to hire and retain officers who display a high degree of professionalism in the performance of duty. Jim does not live in Bradford but is active in community affairs and serves on several committees.
I got to know Chief Valiquet best during my tenure as a selectman with oversight of the police department. I have no doubt that Chief Valiquet will do an outstanding job as sheriff of Merrimack County.
