From the Boston Globe press release:
Boston, MA, Dec. 30, 2011 – The Boston Globe Magazine announced today that it has selected US Attorney Carmen Ortiz as “Bostonian of the Year” for 2011. She will be featured in a special edition of The Sunday Globe magazine on January 1, and online at www.bostonglobe.com/magazine and boston.com. The magazine will also include profiles of several other Bostonians notable for their achievements in 2011.
Ms. Ortiz most recently made international headlines as the lead prosecutor in the infamous case of crime boss Whitey Bulger and his long-time girlfriend Catherine Greig, who will likely stand trial next year.
The Globe Magazine calls Ms. Ortiz “the fighter,” in recognition of her long history of prosecuting political corruption cases – dating all the way back to her summer job in 1980 when she interned at the US Department of Justice’s public integrity unit, working alongside future attorney general Eric Holder.
There you go.
