Jodi Switalski files for Macomb County prosecutor post
A former assistant Macomb County prosecutor and Oakland County judge has filed to run for the open county prosecutor position.
Jodi Switalski, 48, of Harrison Township, is the second candidate and first Democrat to file for the post in the aftermath of former long-time prosecutor Eric Smith resigning March 30, days after he was charged with 10 felonies. Republican state Sen. Peter Lucido filed last week.
Switalski said Monday she decided to run after realizing her “depth of experience as an assistant prosecutor and as a judge in district and circuit courts” makes her highly qualified to serve in the post.
