Middlesex Sheriff Responds to Inquiries On Political Future

Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian issued a statement last Friday, Jan. 11, in response to inquiries on whether he would run for the Middlesex DA's seat.

Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian is not ruling out a run to become the next Middlesex County District Attorney.

Koutoujian, in a statement released last Friday in response to inquires on whether he would run to fill the seat Middlesex County District Attorney Gerry Leone plans to vacate, said "never say never."

“I love my job as Sheriff of Middlesex County and am focused on the work before me," Koutoujian said in the statement. "One of my guiding principles has always been to never say never to any opportunity in which I can provide benefit to the people I serve. But today, I’d just like to congratulate Gerry on what must have been a difficult decision and thank him for his service to Middlesex County."

Koutoujian, a Waltham resident, was appointed to his office in 2010 and later elected in 2012.

No matter who runs, no matter who wins, this County will be suffering a great loss. It will be a LONG time before anyone will ever be able to replace the talented man who will soon be vacating that office. Whoever wins, will have VERY big shoes to fill.
