Thomas Tombarello, Chair
Brian Chirichiello, Vice Chair
Kate Coyle, Clerk


The Board of Commissioners are dedicated to the residents of Rockingham County. Each Commissioner represents a District and all the towns and city in that District.

The structure of county government today is modeled after a basic three-branch system of government. The County Commissioners make up the Executive Branch, which is responsible for the day-to-day operations of county government, in both fiscal and policy matters. The Board of Commissioners is responsible for all county departments and exercise budgetary oversight of all county finances. Other responsibilities include the management of county buildings, and land, and personnel. Authority to permanently hire, discipline, and discharge a county employee is solely the responsibility of the county commissioners unless otherwise provided for.

As County Commissioner, I support implementing programs that produce long-term results, while finding ways to make operations more efficient and reduce expenses. My open door policy allows me to hear directly from my constituents about their needs and the services that would best serve them. I am proud to reside in Rockingham County and will work hard to make it the best for all its residents.

With over a decade of public service, I represent my district with the dedication and thoroughness the taxpayers deserve. My public service ranges from law enforcement, conservation commission, planning board, and Selectman. As a small business owner I know first-hand the hard work and commitment it takes for a small business to survive. My family and I live in Sandown and you will often see me at my children’s sporting and school events.
