More Bar Members on the Ballot
Editor’s Note: As we had anticipated, our article in the Sept. 19 issue on NHBA members running for office inadvertently overlooked some of the candidates. The following article incorporates material from the last article with revisions and corrections. If we STILL missed your participation, please let us know. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
County Attorney Races Contested
Incumbent County Attorneys in Rockingham and Coos counties face challenges in the general election. Kevin Coyle, a Democrat, faces Jim Reams, the Republican incumbent in Rockingham County while Robert Mekeel, a Lancaster attorney, is challenging incumbent Keith Clouatre in Coos. In Merrimack County, Katherine Rogers, a Democrat, faces off against Thomas Reid to replace Dan St. Hilaire, who is also on the ballot as he seeks a seat on the NH Executive Council.
We also neglected to mention attorney William Denley’s bid for State Senate in District 3. He is running as a Republican and faces another Bar member, Hon. Williard "Bud" Martin, the Democrat.
In NH House races, we omitted Democrat Charles Chandler’s bid for State Representative in Grafton County.
Other County Races
In other races not mentioned in our earlier article, Norman Patenaude is running for Rockingham County Commissioner on the Democratic ballot.
Also in Rockingham, Cathy Stacey is seeking reelection as County Register of Deeds.
In Carroll County, attorney Ruth Hall is running as a Democrat for Register of Probate.
We will report on the results after the elections.
