To the Editor:

I met David Quesnel a few months ago when he started running for Prosecuting Attorney for Klickitat County. I have heard him speak at different events and find him to be completely upfront about what he believes needs to be addressed in the Prosecuting Attorney Office. He brings up some very alarming facts about Klickitat County having the highest dismissal rate and lowest conviction rate in the State of Washington.

I have always believed it is the Prosecuting Attorney’s responsibility to hold those that commit a crime accountable for their actions. Dismissing charges and putting criminals back out on the street to commit additional crimes just does not make sense to me. I also question if are we getting the biggest bang for our tax dollars with all these cases being dismissed instead of prosecuted the first time?

I truly believe David Quesnel will be an honest, hardworking, conscience, and transparent Prosecuting Attorney for Klickitat County.
