The Citizen reached out to ADA Joshua Bennett for comment following last week’s debate between district attorney candidates, when Democratic challenger Thomas Turturo alleged that three-term incumbent Jon Budelmann fired Bennett for being activated by the military and got into a “physical altercation” with him in his office.



Budelmann responded during the debate that Bennett had been activated by the military and wasn’t fired, and he also denied that there was a physical altercation in the office.
