Republican Dennis Hogan has announced his intention to run for Hillsborough County Attorney in the November election.
Hogan, of Nashua, served as county attorney from 2011-2012. He lost his bid for reelection in 2012 to Democrat Patricia LaFrance.
Hogan says while serving as county attorney he cut spending in the department by 8 percent.
Under LaFrance, Hogan says spending has increased by 2 percent, a point which LaFrance countered shortly after hearing about Hogan’s intention to run again.
Hogan has handled criminal defense, bankruptcy and personal injuries since beginning the private practice of law in 2002. Hogan established his own firm in 2005.
Hogan served as Ward 2 Delegate to NH’s 17th and last Constitutional Convention in 1984. He represented Ward 2 in the NH Legislature after the 1984 election. He served in 2005 on the Nashua Board of Education, and in 2006, Hogan prevented “Cop Killer Advocate” Tom Alciere from becoming the Republican nominee for State Senate District 13 by mounting a successful write-in campaign for which he received 89 percent of the vote.
