Slam door on plea deals

Dave Stevens is up for the challenge at the prosecutor’s office. Known as “no deal Dave,” he has proved that he will not negotiate with career criminals. It’s time Spokane stopped welcoming criminals with light sentencing! We have enough career criminals born and raised here. We should not welcome more from out of our area by making things easy on them.

Dave plans on setting a good example to those within the prosecutor’s office as well. He intends to be present, making his office more productive and efficient.

Dave Stevens upholds constitutional law.

Dave actually lost his job under Steve Tucker when he announced that he would be running for office. Rarely have candidates been willing to lose so much for the opportunity to serve.

We can trust that Dave will continue to stand up for “we the people.”
