For Washington County State's Attorney

July 13, 2006

If elected Washington County State's Attorney, Jerry Joyce said he would use 10 percent of his annual salary to build and maintain a Web site that would log pictures and street names of convicted drug dealers.

Joyce, 57, of 109 N. Potomac St. in Hagerstown, is the only Democratic seeking the post and is currently a private attorney in Hagerstown.

He said he would pledge 10 percent of his salary each year toward the Web site, to programs that would cut down on fraud and the victimization of the elderly and to organizations such as the Police Athletic League, which helps disadvantaged children.

The state's attorney makes $100,350 a year, County Attorney Richard Douglas has said.

Joyce worked as a prosecutor from 1990 to 2000 - in Washington County and in Carroll County, Md.

Raised in Baltimore, Joyce said he worked his way through college at Towson State (now Towson University), where he got a bachelor's degree in sociology, doing "blue-collar jobs," such as driving trucks and working at a steel mill, from 1967 to 1977. He got his law degree from the University of Baltimore in 1989.

Before he became a lawyer, Joyce worked 13 years as a criminal investigator for Maryland. While he was in law school, he worked as a fraud investigator for Prudential Insurance Co., he said.
