Haley Wamstad for State's Attorney

To the Editor,

A States Attorney is a managerial position of honor requiring dedication, integrity, ethics, and firm but fair actions. Haley Wamstad demonstrates all these characteristics. Her ten years of experience in the States Attorneys office brings insight to the position and offers a new look at current systems.

Haley is a champion of practical solutions to jail overcrowding. Although a tough prosecutor, she realizes we cant continue to build and fill the jails and continues to consider other sentencing options. Looking at innovative ways to prosecute cases can result in innovative ways to deal with the defendant creating efficiencies in the criminal justice system.

Haleys involvement in the new domestic violence court will result in quick court appearances with fair but firm sentencing. As a member of the planning team for the Domestic Violence Court for that last three years, the team focused on offenders appearing on a more frequent basis to monitor compliance with court orders - all by using current court resources.

Growing up in Hatton, North Dakota and her experience with her familys business Hatton Granite, has taught her to work hard and to work with people throughout the community. Haleys involvement with the Greater Grand Forks community through church, Rotary, Young Professionals, ERA, and many others assure us she has a pulse on what our community cares about. Shes tough on crime, pragmatic with solutions, and focused on creating efficiencies in the system.

Vote Haley Wamstad for States Attorney on June 12 we are confident shes the right candidate!
