Former Springfield Mayor Charlie Ryan Endorses Nick Cocchi for Sheriff!
Today, former Springfield Mayor Charlie Ryan endorsed Nick Cocchi for Sheriff! Ryan served as Mayor in the early sixties, and then made a stunning political come back to serve the city as Mayor from 2004 to 2008.
It was Ryan who led the city, working with a State-ordered Finance Control Board, to bring Springfield back to financial stability after the disastrous fiscal mismanagement that preceded Ryan’s term’s. Charlie Ryan has a unique perspective on the Sheriff’s race, having worked and served with current Sheriff Michael J. Ashe, Jr. and more so, having run for Springfield Mayor against both of Cocchi’s Democratic opponents for the Sheriff’s office; Tom Ashe and Michael Albano.
