Local opinion: Mike Jette, Democrat for County Attorney — in my own words

My name is Mike Jette, and I am running to be your next Pima County Attorney. I am a pro-choice, pro-environment Democrat. I stand firmly against the death penalty, believing it is applied unfairly and arbitrarily, and I support automatic diversion for many non-violent crimes. I hold an environmental law degree and an MBA in management and finance. My career has been dedicated to justice and community service, and I have the experience and ethics to do this job right.

For 17 years, I served as a prosecutor at county (Santa Cruz), state, and federal agencies. I was honored to represent the United States and the Department of Justice internationally, working in countries like Pakistan and the Philippines, where I set up prosecution offices and promoted the rule of law.
