GOP State Representative Tim Whelan To Run For Barnstable County Sheriff

October 10, 2021

Massachusetts state representative Tim Whelan (R-Brewster) won’t seek another term.

Instead, the Cape Cod Republican will run for Barnstable County Sheriff. The news comes as the incumbent sheriff, James Cummings, will not run for a fifth term. Cummings is a Republican.

“I had some conversation with my wife and with my children, and I looked at this as an opportunity to step up and succeed a good friend who’s done a great job running the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Department,” Whelan told The Cape Cod Times. “I also feel that given my work history and my resume, my experiences, as a corrections officer, as a police officer and as a policymaker and legislator on Beacon Hill, I think that I’m uniquely positioned to step in and assume the role of sheriff effectively on day one.”

Whelan represents the First Barnstable district. It includes parts of Barnstable, Brewster, Yarmouth, and all of Dennis.
