"As college instructors, we work with students who are building better lives for themselves and their families. With our students in mind, we strongly support District Attorney John Hummel for re-election. Many of our students have encountered the justice system in Deschutes County. Many of our students have been crime victims. Some of our students are recovering from addiction. Some are working to manage mental illness. Some are putting their lives back together after time in jail or prison. And all of our students deserve the stability and justice that a well-run and innovative District Attorney's office provides. Since taking office, District Attorney John Hummel has achieved results as a strong prosecutor and a thoughtful protector of innocent people's rights. His innovative and practical programs help prevent substance abuse, keep people with mental illness out of the corrections system, reduce recidivism, and save taxpayers' money. Our college students and everyone in Deschutes County benefit from John's wise leadership as District Attorney. Re-elect John Hummel!"

And, that is why I continue to support his candidacy for the District Attorney’s office. He has followed through on his promises and has restored dignity to the DA’s office and to his staff."
