Four Contested County Attorney Races

NOTE: This article will be updated in the Nov. 16 issue of Bar News.

The 2012 general election on Nov. 6 includes four contested races for county attorney.

Hillsborough
Patricia LaFrance won the Democratic primary against her former boss, former Hillsborough County attorney Bob Walsh, and will face off against incumbent Republican Dennis Hogan of Nashua, her current boss. Hogan is completing his first two-year term.

Carroll
Assistant County Attorney Stephen Murray, a Republican from Wolfeboro, is running against former Carroll County Attorney Robin Gordon, a Democrat from Tamworth. Gordon, who held the post from 1999 to 2010, had hired Murray to work in her office.

Coos
Two candidates are vying to fill the county attorney post, which County Attorney Robert Mekeel resigned earlier this month, effective Nov. 7, according to the Berlin Daily Sun. Mekeel, who successfully sued the county commissioners over “unsuitable” office space at the county courthouse in 2010, was nearing the end of his second term and did not seek reelection. Democrat John McCormick of Lancaster, the current assistant county attorney, faces Republican Phillip Beiner of Berlin. (McCormick serves on the NHBA Board of Governors as Coos County Governor.)

Rockingham
Portsmouth defense attorney Joe Plaia, a Democrat, is challenging incumbent Jim Reams, a Republican from Hampton.
