I’ve known Justin Chenette for over 15 years. I served with Justin when he was a state representative
while I was in the Senate. Justin has the right kind of experience to be our next county commissioner.
With the county jail and the Sheriff’s office under the purview of county commissioners, Justin worked
with county sheriffs all across our state and the County Commissioner’s Association as a member of the
Legislature’s Criminal Justice & Public Safety Committee. There he helped bring stakeholders together to negotiate additional county jail funding for York County, advocated for state funding of our county
addiction treatment program, and fought for criminal justice reform. On the State & Local Government
Committee, Justin worked on issues pertaining to the structure and budgeting process of county
He worked alongside me as a co-sponsor to my bill that brought $65 million in state funding to secure a
new county courthouse for our area. A much-needed upgrade that will ensure better access to justice.
For all the issues that relate to this position, Justin has been there in the fight, advocating for our
community all along. I’m proud to support him in his efforts to continue his public service as our county
commissioner in the Democratic Primary June 14th.
