Norfolk County Democratic Town Committees Pen Open Letter Endorsing Patrick McDermott for Norfolk County Sheriff

Quincy – Patrick McDermott, Democratic candidate for Norfolk County Sheriff, announced today he has received the endorsement of Norfolk County’s Democratic Town Committees who have penned an open letter announcing their support of him.

In the open letter, the Democratic Town Committees wrote, “We urge everyone to vote for Patrick McDermott, not just because he belongs to the same political party as us, but because his vision for the Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office is one of building our communities and asking us to work together to make the county safer and stronger for everyone. Patrick McDermott understands that the best way to reduce the inmate population at the House of Corrections is to build strong communities where people have hope, access to resources, and the opportunity thrive.”

“I am proud to be a Democrat,” Patrick McDermott said, “because the values of inclusion and support for those who need the most help in our communities are the values that have guided me throughout my career. I am running for Sheriff because of these values, and I look forward to serving all of the residents of Norfolk County as Sheriff.”

The open letter was sent to area media outlets and signed by representatives of the Democratic Town Committees of Bellingham, Braintree, Brookline, Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Milton, Needham, Norwood, Quincy, Randolph, Sharon, Stoughton and Weymouth.
