Vision, leadership lacking in prosecutor's office
Last year, I took the bold step to run for prosecutor, knowing that I did not have any political backing, but I believed that stepping up was the right thing to do for La Porte County. Having worked as a deputy prosecutor here for 23 years, I knew the prosecutor’s office was failing victims, law enforcement and the justice system on a daily basis. I believed that I could provide the vision and leadership lacking in the office, and I still do. Although the odds of me prevailing against the incumbent were not great, I was chosen as the Democratic candidate based on my experience, integrity and vision.
