The Massachusetts District Attorney’s Association (MDAA) has voted to nominate Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz to the position of association president.
At their monthly meeting held yesterday, members of the MDAA nominated DA Cruz as president and Hampden County District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni as vice president.
“I have deep respect for all of my fellow district attorneys and am honored that they have nominated me to be president,” DA Cruz said. “I look forward to continuing our work together through MDAA.”
MDAA is an independent state agency whose mission is to support the 11 elected Massachusetts District Attorneys and their staff, including approximately 785 prosecutors and 260 victim witness advocates.
Plymouth County District Attorney since 2001, DA Cruz is the most senior member of MDAA, and has served as its president twice before, in 2005 and 2010. Currently, DA Cruz serves as a vice president of the National District Attorneys Association, where he serves on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors.
Members of the MDAA will formalize and vote on the nominations at their next meeting on November 16. Norfolk County District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey is the current MDAA president.
