Koutoujian Wins Primary Battle


KoutoujianWinWALTHAM, Mass. — On Thursday, September 8, Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian won the primary fight in a landslide with 77 percent of the vote. As he has no opponent for the general election in November, he has in effect won the seat.

“I am incredibly proud of my record as Sheriff, and humbled by the number of volunteers, particularly in the Armenian community, who helped me share that record with voters. We have made great strides in the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office in the last five years I’ve been Sheriff, and I’m looking forward to building on the incredible foundation we’ve established. It means a lot to know I have such a vibrant and supportive community behind me.”

He has served as sheriff since 2011, when he was appointed by former governor Deval Patrick.
