Campaign donors

2010

In 2010, a year in which Shurtleff was up for re-election, he did not collect any money in donations.[1]

Parole Bill 2010

Shurtleff summarized the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee’s recommendation in favor of SB 500 in the April 16, 2010 House calendar:

"The parole system will also undergo a number of reforms, but two very important facts will not change: violent offenders will still be subject to the jurisdiction and discretion of the parole board and New Hampshire’s truth in sentencing law will remain intact. Nonviolent offenders will be subject to release after serving 120% of their minimum sentence, including the disciplinary period required by law."

After he told the NH House that the bill forcing the release of child sexual predators would only apply to nonviolent criminals, it came out that the new law removed the State Adult Parole Board’s discretion. This means it mandates the release of criminals nine months before the end of their maximum sentences in order to ensure that they were under supervision during their first months outside of prison, whether they be nonviolent or violent predators.[2]

Personal

Shurtleff has three children; Seth, Kristie, and Nathan.[3]
