Unanimous Judiciary vote pushes disputed DA bill forward

by Ruth Leubecker

Better access to justice in Washington County, says Rep. Will Tuell, means Downeast Mane needs two district attorneys.

A years-long debate has hinged on the issue that Washington and Hancock counties, having long shared a DA, now each need their own. “I’m thrilled with the support,” says Tuell, sponsor of LD 272, An Act to Establish Separate Prosecutorial Districts in Downeast Maine. “We  could elect our own district attorney in November 2022.”
