Rochford, who yesterday announced that he will not be seeking re-election to a ninth term this year, focused on Sierchio’s law enforcement experience and record of saving taxpayer dollars as the basis for his endorsement.
“With 24 years of experience as Sheriff, I know exactly what it takes to protect the safety of Morris County residents and the wallets of taxpayers,” said Rochford. “I also know this: there is no one better qualified than John Sierchio to fight for the families, seniors, and taxpayers of Morris County as our next Sheriff, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse his candidacy today.”
“Like all residents of Morris County, I am deeply disappointed Sheriff Rochford will not be seeking re-election this fall because he has served us all with the honor and respect the office deserves,” said Sierchio. “I am proud to receive Sheriff Rochford’s endorsement because no one will fight harder than me to keep Morris County’s families safe and run the office in the fiscally responsible manner taxpayers deserve.”
