Marian Ryan didn’t campaign be Middlesex Country District Attorney. Governor Deval Patrick appointed her to that post in April of last year, after Gerry Leone stepped down. Now Ryan, a career prosecutor, is in campaign mode for the first time, seeking a full term in a contested primary.
She is running on the heels the high-profile Jared Remy murder case which ended with a guilty plea and an independent review of her office. Ryan released the findings of that review back in May, but last week we learned that she held back 19 pages.
