Cousins sweeps to win in sheriff's race


"I feel great; we had a great race," Anketell said. "How can you not have a great time when you meet thousands of people in Essex County?"

Leach, a former Essex County commissioner, could not be reached for comment.

As Essex County sheriff, Cousins runs the Middleton Jail and eight other detention and rehabilitation facilities. He supervises 540 employees and oversees more than 2,000 inmates, including those awaiting trials, those already serving sentences and some federal inmates.

The state agency has a budget of about $50 million per year, but has been hit hard by layoffs and budget cuts as the state struggled through the recession.
