Default King County prosecutor election

Dan Satterberg has a challenger with an aggressive reform agenda.

Fully Invest and in Diversion and Restorative Justice.*We know that programs like the King County Law Enforcement and Assisted Diversion (LEAD) work. However, they affect far too few lives. Similarly, our Regional Mental Health Court serves only a few hundred people each year.* We also must make diversion and restorative justice in all cases where doing so is consistent with accountability and public safety.* We must be bold in expanding programs we know work, and hold ourselves to the ambitious goals we have set. As we reduce waste, excessive bail and delay, we will divert those cost savings to expanded diversion and restorative justice approaches.*

The incumbent’s campaign site doesn’t have much to quote, but from a news story at https://www.thestranger.com/slog/201...nty-prosecutor, he said “It's an opportunity, not just to respond to criticisms from somebody who doesn't have this responsibility, but to really talk about some of the things we've done here,” he said in a phone interview. "When you look at the King County Prosecutor's Office, it is recognized as a national model for innovation and reform."

Lol, when The Stranger is your outlet, I'm thinking his campaign isn't going anywhere.

BTW, notice he doesn't mention how to pay for these specialty Courts which can be very expensive and questionable returns. Not too mention working with several other agencies, it's not his choice ect..

He needs to explain what he's changing because Manka Dhingra IIRC had set up just that kind of thing.
