Haskell a real leader

Ask yourself: Do I fear for my family’s safety when I see a police car patrol my neighborhood? Do I believe that all the deputy prosecutors send bikini photos to dangerous felons? If so, how do we send murderers, burglars and child molesters to prison every day?

We don’t need someone in this job who has made a very good living suing the taxpayers, has never tried a major felony case and doles out social justice clichés like a dog who ate a can of baked beans. There are tough decisions in this job. It is no place for amateurs promising moonbeams and lollipops.

What do prosecutors want? A leader. Someone who has done the hard cases like we have. Someone who will set a high bar and be there to back us up yet tough enough to fire people who deserve it. We want a real leader.

Vote for Larry Haskell for Spokane County prosecutor.

George Gagnon
