State Representative for the Sixteenth Suffolk District Roselee Vincent has endorsed Sheriff Tompkins for the second time. 

"Sheriff Steve Tompkins' commitment to Suffolk County and public safety is unparalleled. His focus on youth violence and crime prevention through education matches my own belief in the power of education towards improving our communities. On Thursday, September 8th, join me and vote for Steve Tompkins," said Representative Vincent. 

Sheriff Tompkins extended his gratitude to the Representative for the show of support. "I'm very appreciative of Representative Roselee Vincent's support of my campaign for reelection as the Sheriff of Suffolk County. Whether fighting for greater educational opportunities for Revere residents as a civilian or serving the neighborhoods of Chelsea, Saugus and Revere as an elected official, Representative works to increase public safety and improve the lives of veterans and senior citizens. She has been a strong advocate for her district and I look forward to continuing our work together."

As the Sheriff of Suffolk County, Tompkins manages all operations at the Suffolk County House of Correction, the Nashua Street Jail and the Civil Process Division.
