MamaJD: Prosecutor Hiring Step In Right Direction

Item: Prosecutor hires new senior deputy (second item) here

MamaJD: I think some mention should be made of Bill Douglas' new hire of Denise Rosen. It would appear that Bill is bringing in outside, seasoned and credible talent to help minimize the disasters. This is a smart move on Bill's part and he should be commended for making this decision. I would bet that he is making inroads to demote (or fire) Rick Baughman and promote Denise Rosen. An experienced prosecutor like Denise Rosen as a #2 will be helpful to the office and to the office image. A step in the right direction, Bill!

Joel Hazel: I agree with MamaJD on the kudos to Bill for the Denise Rosen hiring. Rosen is a very competent and experienced prosecutor. I worked for her when she was the elected prosecutor for Nez Perce County and she was a good boss and mentor. Hopefully Bill will make her Chief Deputy shortly. She will not put up with the antics that been recently reported.
