A Message from Our President, Michael McMahon

On April 1, Richmond County District Attorney Michael McMahon was sworn in as DAASNY President.

Assuming the role of President of the District Attorneys Association of the State of New York (DAASNY) is a humbling moment and I am immensely grateful in the trust placed in me by my colleagues from across the state. As a proud public servant in various capacities for over three decades, my service as District Attorney has made clear that there is no more noble calling in government than that of the prosecutor. But executing our duties on behalf of the People of the State of New York has been made more difficult in recent years. Changes to our discovery and bail laws, Raise the Age, and struggles in retaining talented staff and keeping up with technological changes have impaired our ability to pursue our noble mission: holding lawbreakers accountable under the law, serving innocent victims of crime, protecting public safety for all New Yorkers especially by reducing recidivism when possible and all the while doing the right thing.
