The Colorado District Attorney’s Council has tapped 5th Judicial District Attorney Mark Hurlbert to serve as its president for the next year.

The Colorado District Attorney’s Council represents 22 statewide elected district attorneys and their staffs.

Hurlbert was the president-elect last year, and this year, the council voted him in as president.

“It certainly is a big honor to be recognized by my peers,” said Hurlbert, who has held the job as district attorney for Summit, Clear Creek, Lake and Eagle counties since December 2002.

The council’s mission is to promote, foster and encourage an effective administration of criminal justice in Colorado. It provides services such as personnel training, legislative work, legal research and case tracking data.

Other officers appointed for a year-long term are John Newsome, district attorney for the 4th Judicial District, who will serve as president-elect; Amy Mullaney, assistant district attorney also in the 4th Judicial District will serve as vice president; and Pete Hautzinger, 21st Judicial District Attorney, was elected secretary/treasurer.
