Dennis Hogan seeking another term as Hillsborough County Attorney

MANCHESTER — Hillsborough County Attorney Dennis Hogan of Nashua officially filed Friday for a fourth, two-year term as the county’s top prosecutor.
Hogan said he’s proud of how his office has responded in aggressively prosecuting those responsible for the opioid epidemic that has cost the region hundreds of lives a year.
“The office continues to professionally prosecute every case during this drug-addiction-fueled crime wave. We have adjusted our processes to dealing with the increase from drug cases and the restructuring known as Felonies First,” Hogan said in a statement.
Since first winning the office in 2010, Hogan has won three of four elections, losing his seat narrowly in the presidential election year of 2012 but then recovering to win back the seat in both 2014 and 2016.
“In the next term the office will improve its adaptation to the increase in files from the court’s Felonies First initiative,” Hogan said.
“The judgment I have shown over 6 years in office (proves) I am the right candidate to lead the county attorney’s office in these continuing times of change.”
In 2016, Hogan won re-election over former Democratic Alderman Garth Corriveau of Manchester.
Corriveau is running for a vacant seat on the Executive Council.
There was no Democrat who signed up to oppose Hogan during the candidate filing period that ended Friday at 5 p.m.
But party leaders have until next Wednesday to automatically fill any vacancies on the primary ballot.
