Derry man with fire department connection admits to posting flyers bashing town councilor


DERRY - Derry Police said they now know who posted flyers around town attacking town councilor Albert Dimmock - unveiling his criminal history.

Dimmock admits he was convicted of sexual assault in the early ‘80s in Connecticut and served less than half of his one year sentence.

The flyers recently started popping up, but why now?

Dimmock said because, "I voted on the budget and they’re not happy with it."

Police said Derry resident Christopher Hutchinson admitted to posting the flyers.

The police report states Hutchinson said he got the information from an email he received forwarded to him by someone at the Derry Fire Department.

But when asked to name the person at the fire department who sent it, he declined to say.

The report goes on to say, "Reportedly the information that was forwarded to him in the email originated from the Eagle Tribune."

Dimmock is one of four councilors who voted for a budget that made massive cuts including shutting down a Derry fire station.

The backlash that followed sparked debate around town and on social media.

No charges were filed against Hutchinson and police say no further investigation is needed, but the debate over Derry's budget cuts and fire station closure is far from over.
