D.A. retiring when current term is over
District Attorney Dennis Smith announced Friday that he will retire when his current term ends at the conclusion of this year.
“I turned 60 last week which was the magic number for me,” he said. “It meant I was eligible to retire. But I’m not going to sit and do nothing; I’m just not sure what at this point.”
Smith became the district attorney in 2002 and will have served three four-year terms when this one ends. He has never had an opponent, and no one had announced against him for this year’s race.
