Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty to Speak
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty’s public service began right after college when he became a county probation officer and continued when he was hired to be a Cuyahoga County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. Over the next 10 years, he advanced in the office and handled many of its most important and high-profile cases. In 1992, the Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association named him Ohio Prosecutor of the Year. That same year, he won the first of four elections to the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court bench. During his more than 18 years as a Common Pleas Court Judge, Mr. McGinty consistently ran one of the county’s most efficient criminal and civil dockets. In 2011, McGinty left the bench to run for and become Cuyahoga County Prosecutor.
He will speak at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, in Fairview Park City Hall's Dunson Room. Mr. McGinty will address the changes he has brought to the Prosecutor's Office and discuss the highlights of his tenure. City Hall is located at 20777 Lorain Road. The event is being co-sponsored by Bay Village, Lakewood, Fairview Park, North Olmsted, Rocky River, and Westlake Democratic Clubs, the Westside Democrats and Stonewall Democrats.
