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

Hampton is my home where my political career began
of the Hampton Budget Committee in 1991. Then, from 1992-1996, I was a member of the State Legislature before being
elected a County Commissioner in 1997. My goal is to maintain
Rockingham's quality services and traditionally low county taxes
in an environment of diminishing federal and state Medicaid
funding and to fight further cost shifting by the State of New
Hampshire to local property taxes.
Thomas Tombarello, District II Commissioner
Atkinson, Brentwood, Epping, Exeter, Fremont, Hampstead, Newfields,
Newmarket, Raymond, Salem, Sandown
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.
Kevin L. Coyle, District III Commissioner
