Shurtleff has served as Concord At-Large City Councilor since 2004. He was co-chair of New Hampshire Veterans for Kerry; member of the New Hampshire Democratic State Committee and the Merrimack County Democratic Executive Committee; and a delegate to the Democratic National Convention.
Shurtleff earned his A.A. from the City College of Chicago. His professional experience includes working as a substitute teacher in the Merrimack School District, and United States Marshal supervisory deputy for the United States Department of Justice-United States Marshals Service. Shurtleff served as a sergeant in the United States Army.
At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Shurtleff served on the following committees:

2010 parole bill
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.
Shurtleff won election in the 2012 election for New Hampshire House of Representatives, Merrimack 11. Shurtleff advanced past the September 11 primary and was unopposed in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
