As I've often said, how about term limits for District Attorneys?ReplyDelete
Queens County District Attorney Richard A. Brown has been in office since 1991 (22 years). And both the Bronx County District Attorney, Robert T. Johnson, and the Kings County (Brooklyn) District Attorney, Charles J. Hynes, have been in their posts since 1989 (24 years!).
Just imagine if the United States had the same Attorney General for 5 presidential administrations.
Things that make you go, “Hmmm.”
How outrageous! I'm appalled..... oh sorry, disappointed,.. yes that's right I'm disappointed.ReplyDelete
