Opponent nearly shut out; Double-Dipping plans hamper campaign
For Immediate Release
Contact: Jim Gannon (973) 588-5089
Boonton, April 5, 2016 - Career law enforcement and global security specialist Jim Gannon rolled out a new list of endorsements today, giving him the backing of more than 100 Conservative and Republican leaders throughout Morris County, and leaving his opponent nearly shut out from grassroots support.
Gannon's opponent, John Sierchio, has been hampered by his announced plans to accept two-taxpayer funded paychecks for just one job totaling nearly $200,000 annually, if elected Sheriff. The state's largest newspaper calls the practice an "obscenity" and that people who do it are "gaming the pension system with impunity by exploiting a loophole in the law," while Republican Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) calls it "egregious to the general public."
Gannon expressed thanks and gratitude to all those supporting him, and called the reception he is receiving across the county "very heartwarming and encouraging."
"The voters I am speaking with are embracing my message of a more modern, fiscally responsible Sheriff's office that keeps our county safe and ensures that taxpayer money is spent wisely in the process," said Gannon.
