Deputy Sheriffs Union Unanimously Endorses Acting Sheriff Shawn Gillen as, “the only choice.”
The union representing every full-time Deputy Sheriff is formally endorsing the candidacy of Acting Sheriff Shawn D. Gillen, of Blaine. NEPBA Local 601, also known as the Aroostook County Deputy Sheriffs Association, recently polled its membership and received unanimous support from every active member to offer this endorsement. All of our unit’s career retirees were also contacted and they want their voices added to this endorsement.
