MARK A. MCCANN
McCann is the Prosecuting Attorney for Howard County, Indiana, and has announced his candidacy for re-election. McCann is currently serving his second term as the Prosecuting Attorney. The primary election is scheduled for May 8, 2018.
McCann served as the Chief Deputy Prosecutor for 16 years and was elected Prosecutor in 2010.
As prosecutor, McCann will continue the tradition of fairness and integrity displayed during his service with the Prosecutor’s Office.
McCann has prosecuted the most serious street crimes and conducted complex white-collar investigations. If re-elected as Prosecutor, McCann will continue to be fair, but firm. McCann will continue to work with, and listen to, victims of crimes, citizens, and members of law enforcement in order to give the Prosecutor’s Office a full understanding and assist in decision making.
The Prosecutor’s Office comes with a unique blend of authority and responsibility, and McCann intends to use these qualities of the office to ensure that Howard County remains safe. During his first term as Prosecutor, the Office has acted as a partner with law enforcement and the community to help prevent crime and develop innovative and practical solutions to attack crime at its early stages in a proactive, versus reactive, manner.
McCann will endeavor, as Prosecutor, to focus not only on crimes against persons, but on ensuring the safety of our children from being abused or becoming the targets of sexual predators as well. The Prosecutor’s Office will not lose sight of its duty to protect the most vulnerable people in our county, including the elderly, youth, and targets of bias or domestic violence.
McCann welcomes your support and looks forward to serving you in the future.
