North Plainfield Chief of Police Bill Parenti

Republican sheriffs back Parenti

By Nikita Biryukov, April 23 2019 3:30 pm

Seven New Jersey Sheriffs are backing North Plainfield Police Chief Bill Parenti’s bid to succeed Somerset County Sheriff Frank Provenzano, who is retiring after 18 years as sheriff.

“I am grateful for the outpouring of support from my brothers and sisters in law enforcement,” Parenti said. “I have spent my life protecting and serving our communities, and I’m ready on Day One to be your Sheriff.”

Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield, Cape May County Sheriff Robert Nolan, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, Morris County Sheriff Jim Gannon, Ocean County Sheriff Michael Mastronardy, Salem County Sheriff Charles Miller, Sussex County Sheriff Michael Strada and Warren County Sheriff James McDonald are backing Parenti over retired K-9 unit commander Tim Pino.

Pino, an aide to State Sen. Michael Doherty, is running against Parenti in June’s primaries.

Provenzano and the Somerset County Republican Organization have backed Parenti’s bid.

Somerset Democrats are fielding former Franklin Township police lieutenant Darren Russo, who won 49% of the vote against Provenzano in 2016.
