The mission of the Cheshire County Sheriff's Office is to ensure that New Hampshire is a safe place to live, work, and visit.
Aria DiMezzo is running as a Republican with the campaign slogan “F*** the Police,” but she isn't getting a lot of support from the Republican Party.
DiMezzo won the Republican nomination for Cheshire County Sheriff by running unopposed in the primary. She’ll now square off with popular incumbent Democrat Eli Rivera, who is running for his fifth term. DiMezzo won despite the fact that she received no support from the county or state GOP. As it turns out, it appears that DiMezzo might not even be a Republican, but only ran as one because of the challenges associated with getting a Libertarian on the ticket.
"It is with great joy that I receive this nomination from the Republicans of Cheshire County, who, in an era of Donald Trump, showed their tolerance and dedication to the principles of small-government by nominating the trans anarchic High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church to be sheriff," writes DiMezzo on Facebook.
DiMezzo is an author who describes herself on Amazon as follows: "I am a transgender anarchist, capitalistic, atheistic lesbian from Mississippi, which, as you can imagine, has given me quite a lot to write about."
Inside Sources claim that DiMezzo is a member of the Libertarian group “Free Keene” which was how she was able to get into the ballot. She also hosts an internet radio show where she is referred to as “She-Male.” Free Keene started as an off-shoot of the Free State Project of Libertarians, but the Free State Project has since distanced itself from Free Keene.
Marylin Huston, Cheshire County GOP chair says that DiMezzo is welcome to be part of the GOP, but some people may have disagreed with her positions.
“If you look at their social media and their political statements they really do not fall in line with the Republican message,” Huston said.
DiMezzo now moves on to face Democrat incumbent Sheriff Eli Rivera in the general election on November 3rd!
This is not the first time that DiMezzo has ran for Cheshire Sheriff as a Libertarian candidate. In 2018 the transsexual anarchist founder of the Reformed Satanic Church only received just over 2.3% of the vote in the three-way race.
