Swearing in Bristol County District Attorney Tom Quinn
On Thursday, January 31, 2019 at Bristol Community College, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III took the oath of office for a second time.
D.A. Quinn first gained the seat four years ago after then D.A. Sam Sutter left the position to run for Mayor of Fall River during the recall election. The vacant D.A. seat was up for grabs, but was not an easy fight.
Newly elected Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito received an outpouring of support for Tom Quinn as the region’s pick. They chose him, and yesterday, Lt. Governor Polito swore him in.
Remarks were made by Lt. Governor Polito, Second District Attorney Jennifer Sowa, and D.A. Quinn’s brother, John Quinn.
