Christian W. Mash, Esq., was sworn in on January 3, 2023 as the State’s Attorney for Garrett County.
In the November 2022 election, Justin Gregory, Esq., was elected as the next State’s Attorney. However, Mr. Gregory was then appointed Circuit Court Judge by Governor Hogan. This appointment was made prior to the beginning of the new term, which created a vacancy in the office.
After a review of eligible and qualified applicants, Judge Gregory appointed Mash as State’s Attorney for the four-year term beginning January 3rd.
