Rockingham County attorney candidates talk leadership at forum
The event at the Portsmouth Public Library comes 20 days before the Republican primary.
But the forum — hosted by the Rockingham County Bar Association — did not bring about any confrontation among the four Republican candidates about how they would lead or manage the office.
“You can’t do that by putting someone in there who is part of the problem,” Grosky said.
DiCroce, a former assistant county attorney, wants to reshape the office so that a division works on specific types of crimes so that there are more consistent punishments or resolutions throughout the county.
Zaino, who once served as a federal prosecutor, said he would target large-scale drug dealers in the region while seeking programs for addicts who want to get themselves clean. He said area hospitals and health care providers need to become part of the public dialogue.
Democrat Joe Plaia, running unopposed in the primary, said he wanted to mirror programs that have already been successful in Strafford County. They include expansion of its drug court, increasing programs focused on treating addiction and finding earlier resolutions in criminal cases.
