Greater Lowell Area Democrats (GLAD) Chair Marie Sweeney announced today that former Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone will be honored as the 2013 Distinguished Democrat at the Annual Fall Brunch on Sunday October 27, 2013.
First elected as the Middlesex DA in 2006 Attorney Leone declined to seek reelection to an upcoming third term. This past March he resigned from his position to join the international law firm Nixon Peabody LLP as partner in the firm’s Government Investigations & White Collar Defense practice in Boston. Prior to his election as district attorney, Mr. Leone served as first assistant United States attorney in the District of Massachusetts, managing the office and conducting federal and international investigations and cases ranging from public corruption to health care fraud and cybercrime.
Attorney Leone has earned the respect of law enforcement, business and community leaders, his fellow members of the bar, government officials as well as political leaders and activists for his work as an effective and ethical prosecutor and community leader. His career has been focused on seeking justice for victims of crime and in protecting the children and families of the Commonwealth.
Members of Greater Lowell Area Democrats are pleased and proud at the choice of Attorney Gerry Leone and look forward to honoring him as our 2013 Distinguished Democrat.
Reservations for the event to be held at Lenzi’s in Dracut can be made with Greater Lowell Area Democrat Chair Marie Sweeney at email@example.com. Tickets are $40 each. Table reservations are available.
