Eight of New Hampshire's top law enforcement officials support Ovide for Governor
The Ovide for Governor campaign today announced the endorsements of Sheriffs Craig Wiggin, Michael Downing, and Michael Prozzo, increasing the number of New Hampshire sheriffs endorsing Lamontagne’s candidacy to eight.
“I am honored to receive the endorsements of these exceptional leaders and I am grateful for the strong support our law enforcement community has shown to me throughout my campaign,” said Lamontagne. “Through their dedication and personal sacrifice, our families, neighborhoods and businesses are kept safe every day. As Governor, I look forward to working with our sheriffs and law enforcement across the state to ensure we continue to do so.”
"Ovide Lamontagne is a leader of deep integrity and principle, whose vision for our state and significant experience in the public, private and non-profit sector will make him an excellent Governor for New Hampshire," said NH Sheriffs Association President and Belknap County Sheriff Craig Wiggin. “His focus on enacting a pro-jobs Prosperity Agenda for our state will make New Hampshire a safer place to live, work and raise a family, which is critical to ensuring a brighter future for all."
Rockingham County Sheriff Michael Downing said, "Ovide Lamontagne has spent months traveling the state, taking the time to meet and speak with sheriffs, police chiefs and county attorneys alike. He has listened closely to us, and he understands the challenges our law enforcement community faces daily."
"Ovide Lamontagne is the strong leader we need in Concord as our next Governor," said Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Prozzo. "We are still facing challenging times in many parts of the state, and Ovide has a plan to get our economy back on track. He understands that creating an environment that helps generate good jobs is not only important for our families and small businesses, but that doing so will help make our communities safer and more prosperous."
Lamontagne had previously earned the support of Sheriff Christopher Conley (Carroll County), Sheriff Doug Dutile (Grafton County), Sheriff Wayne Estes (Strafford County), Sheriff Scott Hilliard (Merrimack County) and Sheriff Gerald Marcou (Coos County).
