Attorney General Maura Healey Endorses Patrick McDermott for Norfolk County Sheriff


Quincy – Patrick McDermott, Democratic candidate for Norfolk County Sheriff, announced today he has received the endorsement of Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey.

“I am proud to endorse Pat McDermott for Norfolk County Sheriff.  We need more elected leaders like Pat in office who are ready and willing to reimagine the role of public safety,” Attorney General Healey said. “Pat’s goal to expand the scope of the Sheriff’s office to focus on prevention, intervention and community engagement will bring a new model of public safety to the 28 communities of Norfolk County.”

“It is an honor to have the endorsement of the people’s lawyer, Attorney General Maura Healey,” said McDermott. “Attorney General Healey understands that bringing a new vision to the Sheriff’s office is important for a stronger, safer Norfolk County,” McDermott said. “I believe that the keys to public safety are prevention, intervention, education and hope.  By working with local law enforcement and community leaders, we can provide the tools and services to keep people out of jail and get those who have been incarcerated back on the right path.  This holistic view will help to increase safety in our communities and stop the revolving door of repeat offenders.”

Patrick McDermott has served the 28 cities and towns of Norfolk County for the past 18 years as the Register of Probate, where he has worked to improve services and efficiency in the Probate and Family Court. He also served as a Quincy City Councilor and is involved in professional and community organizations such as Rotary International and the Norfolk County and Massachusetts Bar Associations.
