McCann, Jr., will head the team of Assistant District Attorneys and Montgomery County Detectives who will work with county and local law enforcement, as well as other government officials, to protect access to and the integrity of the November 6th election. Any reported violation of election laws will be investigated, and if appropriate, prosecuted.”
