Beggs a proven leader

Are you aware of the difference of experience in the two candidates running in the Spokane County prosecutor election?

We can elect Breean Beggs, a multitalented, proven community leader. He has 23 years experience that covers criminal and civil law, handling cases in municipal, district, superior, appellate and the Washington Supreme Court. He has managed law offices, supervised attorneys and overseen budgets. We have current, outstanding examples of what Beggs brings.

U.S. Attorney Mike Ormsby and Spokane City Attorney Nancy Isserlis did not have prosecution experience prior to taking office. Both came from civil practice, yet both very effectively lead criminal and civil divisions, as the Spokane County prosecutor must do. We can hire attorneys to prosecute criminal cases. But Beggs is the only candidate with skills who can handle an entire office.

We recently had a gathering at our home to introduce Beggs to our friends. He has sound ideas to make our Spokane justice system more effective and reduce costs. Breean Beggs is the man for our future.
