Coconino County Attorney Bill Ring has been nominated for the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) 2021 National Distinguished Prosecutor of the Year Award, according to a media release.

“I hope the residents of Coconino County see this nomination as a sign that their elected leaders are working hard and making an impact locally and nationally. I appreciate the honor of being nominated as I continue to serve Coconino County,” said Ring in a statement.
