Rockingham County Attorney now a four-way race
DiCroce, of Fremont said he will make an official announcement about his intention to run on April 8 at a campaign kickoff event in Epping. He said he is running for the top prosecutor's job so he can restore the reputation of the county attorney's office in the wake of allegations of financial misconduct and sexual harassment by embattled County Attorney James Reams.
Reams, who remains suspended from his job, is fighting removal proceedings by the state attorney general after a five-month investigation concluded he mismanaged a forfeiture account and sexually harassed employees. He has denied any wrongdoing and is not seeking reelection to a 9th term.
DiCroce said he decided to enter the race after speaking with area police chiefs, law enforcement officials and residents around Rockingham County.
"You will have experts in those areas, but you will have results that are consistent," he said.
DiCroce said he also wants to have prosecutors present at more crime scenes to aid with the collection of evidence and to advise police so they can avoid potential legal challenges when the case is prosecuted.
He said an important part of his campaign will be distinguishing himself from his opponents. They include Patricia Conway, an assistant county attorney from Salem; Salem police prosecutor Jason Grosky of Atkinson and Michael Zaino, an assistant Hillsborough county attorney from Hampton.
