People in this story

Cape Cod Times, January 2022

In advance of the district attorney election in November, several local organizations are partnering to present the webinar “What a Difference a DA Makes,” an educational workshop about the prominent law enforcement role. “District attorneys are the most powerful people in the criminal justice system,” said Jeanne Morrison, co-vice president of the League of Women Voters of the Cape Cod area, one of the sponsor groups. “This workshop will educate people on what a DA does, the role of the DA, who is qualified to be a DA, and how to hold a DA accountable.” The virtual event, which will feature Whitney A. Taylor, political director of the American Civil Liberties Union Massachusetts, will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 26.

Lou Cerrone, a member of the Cape and Island’s Democratic Council, said there are “quite a few people” throughout the community who don’t know who the district attorneys are in Massachusetts, and don’t know the role is an elected position. The main point of the webinar, he said, is to “provide as much information as possible to area-wide voters.”
