FLAHERTY HAS THE EXPERIENCE TO DELIVER
THE CHANGE WE NEED
“Over the years, we had many opportunities to work on many highly complex and challenging criminal prosecutions....Justice could not have been served…without your hard work and professional conduct…You have the needed attributes to bring a new level of fiscal prudence and oversight to our District Attorney’s Office.” Les Stiles, Deschutes County Sheriff (Ret.)
FLAHERTY KNOWS THE D.A.’s OFFICE SHOULD BE ABOUT
JUSTICE AND COMMUNITY SAFETY
“…I can tell you that he is a person of deep integrity, compassion and leadership, an extraordinarily skilled prosecutor in the courtroom, a man who knows that it is important for a District Attorney to choose wisely how to spend the limited resources of the citizens of a community; finally, a person with a keen sense of justice and who knows how to protect people like me from the violent acts of dangerous people.” Terri Jentz, author Strange Piece of Paradise
FLAHERTY WILL BE A PROBLEM-SOLVING, REALISTIC,
FORWARD-LOOKING PROSECUTOR WHO WILL VALUE THE IMPORTANCE OF USING LIMITED TAX-PAYER DOLLARS WISELY
“Your work ethic, professionalism, and commitment to justice is a standard we need to see more in our complex system. You have the ability and experience to lead our District Attorney’s Office in a new direction that will use our hard earned tax dollars in a just and equal manner.” Jerry Stone,
Bend Police Department Lieutenant (Ret.)
It is time for a change and a D.A. dedicated to justice.
