DA Ramos Elected to Represent the State of California

On June 24, 2011, the Board of Directors for the Nat ional District Attorney's Association unanimously voted in their newest member, San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael A. Ramos.

Ramos, who will hold the position for one year, was asked by President-elect Jan Scully to serve as co-chair of the National District Attorney's Association committee for corrections and prison re-entry.

"Because of my work as president of the CDDA with Governor Brown on AB 109 this past year, I have been noticed as an expert in this area," said Ramos.

"Having this opportunity will give me the chance to highlight the successes and models of our office with my colleagues across the country. Ultimately, though, this will allow me to be a leader on all issues that affect public safety and victims of crime."
