During a second term as District Attorney for Baker County, I will work hard to protect our communities and to continue to make Baker County a safe place to live and raise our children.
During the last four years, I have strived to improve the way child abuse cases are investigated and prosecuted in Baker County. I will continue to build on this progress while taking a tough stance against offenders who harm children. Working closely with the Baker County Narcotics Enforcement Team, I will continue to fight against those who manufacture and distribute narcotics in Baker County. I will also work with the drug court to assist those who are addicted to drugs. Protecting seniors from financial fraud and assisting victims of domestic violence will also be a top priority.
To be successful, law enforcement must work as a team. I look forward to leading that team during the next four years. I will continue to build on the progress that has been made while setting new goals and standards for the entire law enforcement community. I love Baker County and look forward to the opportunity to continue the hard work of public safety as District Attorney during a second term.
