NORWICH – Another full-time attorney will be working for Chenango County as the District Attorney’s Office has appointed former part-time assistant D.A. Stephen Dunshee to the position.
“I am honored to represent the people of Chenango County. I like the DA’s attitude and aggressive pro-active approach to prosecution. We have developed a close working relationship. I love being a prosecutor and don’t think I could even go back to representing defendants,” said Dunshee.
In an agreement with the Personnel and Finance Committees Sept. 27, D.A. Joseph A. McBride was given the go-ahead to eliminate two part-time positions in order to create the full-time job. Dunshee’s former part-time position has been eliminated; the second belongs to ADA Patrick Flanagan, who will step down from his current duties in January.
