The Police Benevolent Association (PBA) Local 85 in North Plainfield has endorsed their hometown police chief to be the next Somerset County sheriff.

Bill Parenti is seeking the Republican nomination for sheriff to succeed Frank Provenzano, who is retiring after eighteen years in office.

“We’ve witnessed firsthand, Chief Parenti’s work in North Plainfield during his 34 years of service,” said PBA president Sabrina Romasz. “Running one of the larger police organizations in Somerset County, for the amount of time as a sitting Chief, gives Chief Parenti an advantage through his experience, that some of the other candidates may not have.”

Parenti faces Tim Pino, a retired sheriff’s officer who is now an aide to State Sen. Michael Doherty (R-Oxford).

The Somerset County Democratic screening committee has recommended Darren Russo, a retired Franklin Township police lieutenant, as their candidate.  Russo won 49.5% of the vote in his 2016 race against Provenzano.  Democrats will award their line at a convention later this month.
