BLOUNTVILLE — At its 2019 annual conference in Memphis, the Tennessee County Attorneys Association elected Daniel P. Street president of the organization. Street is county attorney for Sullivan County, a position to which he is elected (to four-year terms).

Street, county attorney since 1994, also served as president of the association in 2002-2003.


“Dan is the longest serving elected official in Sullivan County and continues to be one of the leading county attorneys in the state,” Sullivan County Mayor Richard Venable said in a statement last week. “We add our congratulations to Dan on his leadership of this important association.”


The TCAA was established in 1986 by a group of county attorneys, representing both urban and rural counties across the state, when they saw a need for an organization to provide a network for all county attorneys in which they could share experiences and research, according to a press release issued by the association last week.

An annual conference is held in each of Tennessee’s three Grand Divisions on a rotating basis, with expert speakers from all government areas to benefit county attorneys in their service to their counties. The conference also offers the opportunity for members and attorneys across the state to attain some of their required continuing legal education credits each year.

“Mr. Street has been a valued member of the TCAA for many years and is highly respected by his peers,” the association’s press release stated. “He has been on the TCAA board of directors since 1998, serving his fellow members with his knowledge and experience as a county attorney.”
