DA-elect Anthony Gulluni to Speak at Wilbraham & Monson Academy
WILBRAHAM — Newly elected Hampden County District Attorney Anthony Gulluni will visit the Wilbraham & Monson Academy campus on Thursday, Sept. 25 and speak during classes and at the weekly all-school meeting at 2:30 p.m.
A 1999 alumnus of the academy, Gulluni was elected the next DA in Hampden County, which is the largest county in Western Mass. The election was held Sept. 9, and he will be sworn in early in January. He earned 44% of the vote in the four-person race and won most of the voting districts in Hampden County, including Wilbraham.
Gulluni started working for long-time Hampden County District Attorney Bill Bennett in 2009. When Mark Mastroianni took over as DA, Gulluni was promoted to assistant DA for the Superior Court, which is the highest trial-court system at the state level. Mastroianni was named a federal judge in June, which created an opening for a new Hampden County DA.
“I’m thankful to Wilbraham & Monson and what it did for me as a young person,” Gulluni said. “It’s a pretty significant part of the foundation. It’s my upbringing and my education that got me to this point, and I’m proud to be an alumnus.”
