CLEVELAND — For the first time in 14 years, Cuyahoga County has a new prosecutor.
Former Common Pleas Judge Tim McGinty began the job today. He is also the Democratic candidate for the position on the November ballot.
McGinty was appointed to carry out the position after Bill Mason announced his resignation last month.
McGinty released this statement following the announcement, “I am honored by the appointment of County Executive FitzGerald and look forward to working with him to make Cuyahoga County an even better and safer place to live and work.”
