PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County District Attorney is making history. Daina Vitolins was elected president of the Oregon District Attorneys Association, becoming the first woman to run the group of county prosecutors. “I’m really honored and pleased that the Oregon District Attorneys Association chose to elect me as their president.  I think we should have had a female president sooner but I’m excited to be making history on behalf of the Oregon District Attorneys Association,” Vitolins tells KBND News.

 

 “I also bring the rural perspective which is often forgotten in the valley. I’ve learned that quite clearly. And somebody needs to be there and be sure to remind everybody that Oregon is the entire state; central, eastern, and southern Oregon as well as the valley.”

 

Vitolins will lead the panel of 36 District Attorneys, as they consider legislation that impacts safety in Oregon. Vitolins has served as Crook County DA since November of 2008.
