Incumbent District Attorney Jason Woodbury asks for another term…

DA Jason Woodbury
Seeking a third term as
CC District Attorney

Experience:

When it comes to protecting your family’s safety, there’s no substitute for experience.  I haven’t seen it all in my seven-plus years of serving as your District Attorney, but I’ve seen a lot.  The team of men and women in our office is superb, and fights for this community’s safety every day.  We’re more than ready for any challenge that comes our way.

Fighting for Victims:

An arrest marks the end of the hurting and the beginning of the healing for victims of crime.  Our office processes about 3,000 criminal cases every year.  Many of those cases involve a victim.  When a law enforcement agency submits a criminal report to my office, the first person to touch that report is an advocate in our Victim/Witness Services unit.  That advocate’s highest priority is to contact the victim as soon as possible.  From that moment on, every victim in every case has a direct and personal connection to the team that will prosecute the case.  I can’t guarantee you or someone you love will never be victimized by crime.  But rest assured, you’ll have strong, skilled, compassionate advocates in your corner if you are.  As your District Attorney, I consider this to be my most important duty.

Government Transparency:

The District Attorney’s office has primary responsibility for ensuring that all meetings of the Board of Supervisors and the other 21 boards, committees and commissions that advise the Supervisors are open, transparent and compliant with Nevada’s Open Meeting Law.  During my administration, we have served as legal staff for nearly 1,000 such meetings, all of which were required to be 100% compliant with Nevada’s Open Meeting Law.  I am proud to report that there has not been a single complaint filed alleging an Open Meeting Law violation against any public body my office represents.  Not a single one.  For me, perfection is the only acceptable standard on this subject.  My team of civil attorneys understands my expectation, and I’m grateful they have met such a rigorous standard.

Responsible Use of Taxpayer Dollars:

Like you, I expect my public officials to be absolutely responsible and accountable for the use of taxpayer dollars.  As your District Attorney, I am ever mindful that every dollar spent in my office is a dollar that was taken from the pocket of someone who worked hard to earn it.  In fiscal year 2021, the last fiscal year in which audited financial data is available, my office’s expenditures were 4.11% of the total General Fund expenditures in Carson City.  (Source: CARSON CITY’S ANNUAL COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL REPORT, Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2021 at pages 29 and 85, available here.)

That’s a good value, as you can see when comparing the same data for other surrounding counties:

  • Douglas: 7.03% (Source: at pages 33, 97, and 104, available here.)

  • Lyon: 4.34% (Source: at pages 17, 20, and 74, available here.)

  • Storey: 5.21% (Source: at pages 17, 22, and 24, available here.)

  • Washoe: 7.54% (Source: at pages 22 and 25-26, available here.)

Like your family, my management team has worked hard to live within its means during my administration.  In fact, in each of the years I have served as your District Attorney, my office has under spent its allocated budget and returned taxpayer dollars to the General Fund.

Commitment to Carson City’s Future:

Twenty-five years ago, I decided to make Carson City my home.  I met my wife here.  My children were born here and go to school here.  The safety and prosperity of the families who share this community with my family are deeply personal concerns for me.  Eight years ago, I began my first campaign to serve this community which has been so good to us.  Carson City voters hired me, and serving as your D.A. has been the honor of my life.  I hope to earn your vote.

Thank you,

Jason Woodbury, District Attorney
