The Source Weekly Endorses John Hummel for Deschutes County D.A.


Though the paper admitted Hummel isn't as experienced in prosecution as Flaherty -- they believe Hummel is a better manager and team player that would allow him to run a smoother D.A.'s office.

 

The Bend Bulletin on the other hand, gave the nod to Flaherty because he's an effective prosecutor and Hummel is a criminal defense attorney.

 

"The Bend Bulletin's editorial writers want a D.A. that focuses on prosecutions.  I say you need to prosecute the bad guys, but we also need to do crime prevention.  Preventing crime makes a community safer and costs less.  We have a philosophical difference there."

 

The Source Weekly that endorsed Hummel says Hummel's time as project manager for the Carter Center setting up a justice system in Liberia and his time as a city councilor will help him run an effective D.A.'s office.
