DOTC Appreciates McHugh’s Emotion

Dan Of The Community: I attended and it was a very informative and civil event. I happened to sit right behind Barry’s parents and next to the wife of Don Gary, no negative vibes or tension in the air. I think everyone, and likely Barry too, was caught off guard a little at his evident emotions that briefly welled up when talking about his feelings about the position. I took it as a sincere display of his commitment and see it as a sign of a whole and mature person. For someone who has to make the kind of decisions that a prosecutor must make including life and death sentencing options to the correct balance of charging discretion, I frankly think that is a good and healthy attribute to hang on to.

Question: Do you appreciate it when a political figure like Barry McHugh shows emotion?
