Joe Early, Jr.: 13 to Watch in Central Mass in 2013
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
The Worcester native has garnered broad support among Central Mass constituents due in part to his aggressive prosecution of individuals brandishing firearms and the steep sentences he and the local courts have sought in such cases.
If that weren't cause enough to take note of the Worcester County DA, when an attempted robber who tried to steal the DA's wallet at a local pizza place in December, Early took the suspect down himself, pinning him against a wall until a court officer helped him keep the suspect under wraps until police arrived.
Could he be headed up the chain in Mass politics? He definitely seems ready for anything.
