A new Hampden County District Attorney was sworn in at First Church in Springfield's Court Square on Wednesday morning.
Anthony Gulluni, who was elected as the new D.A. back in November, was sworn-in by his predecessor, U.S. District Court Judge Mark Mastroianni.
Former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn spoke at the ceremony.
Gulluni said one of his priorities is to ensure his new team is ready.
There were 19 people he did not retain in the District Attorney's Office. He will seek new applicants through the Hampden County Bar Association.
Although Gulluni did not name the individuals, he notified the victim witness advocates, assistant district attorneys and support staff that they would not have jobs in his administration.
CBS 3's Julie Leonardi was at the event and will bring you the full story coming up First at 4.
