Letter: Endorsement for Jan Jude for Mille Lacs County Attorney

I enthusiastically support Jan Jude on her campaign for re-election for Mille Lacs County Attorney.

I support her without a doubt and here is why: I have known Jan Jude for the majority of my time as the former Chief of Police for the City of Milaca and I have known her family even longer than that.

I proudly served the Milaca community for 18 years before retiring and worked closely with Jan and her office. My experience in working with Jan Jude was outstanding. Jan made herself and her staff available 24 hours/7 days a week to answer questions and calls from myself and my officers. In all my years as Chief she was by far the most easily accessible county attorney I have ever dealt with.

She made herself and her office more accessible for law enforcement needs than any other office or county attorney I have ever worked with in my career. Furthermore, Jan provided numerous training opportunities and developed a monthly law enforcement bulletin that covered a variety of issues such as domestic assault investigations, search warrants, report writing, trial preparation, DWI crimes, etc.    I have seen first-hand Jan create an office that has produced award-winning prosecutors that have gained invaluable experience while under her leadership. Her administration has gained statewide recognition in the awards they have received.
I was proud to work and serve my community with Jan Jude as County Attorney. She is the absolute clear choice in this upcoming election. It makes no sense to take steps backwards when she has taken this office so far. Jan is a lifelong member of our community and as county attorney she has dedicated herself to remaining a community member in public service. She has already proven her dedication over the past 12 years and she will continue to do that. Vote for Jan Jude in the primary election on August 12 and again this November in the general election.
