NASHUA — William H. Barry III, a former member of the Nashua Police Commission, confirmed Thursday that he is interested in filling the newly vacant police commissioner seat.
"If I am nominated by the governor and approved by the Executive Council, I would be honored to serve," Barry told the New Hampshire Union Leader.
Earlier this week, the Executive Council accepted the resignation of Thomas Pappas, former chairman of the Nashua Police Commission. Pappas resigned following his involvement with state Rep. David Campbell, who ran over and killing several ducks outside a city hotel. Pappas came to the aid of Campbell following the accident, picking Campbell up at his nearby office and contacting police on Campbell's behalf, according to police reports.
