To the citizens of Hood River County,

For several years I had the pleasure of serving with Carrie on the Department of Human Services Child Welfare Advisory Committee(CWAC) and the Child Justice Act Task Force(CJATF). Carrie was a standout leader on both of these committees. I’m proud to say that under her leadership on the CJATF, we accomplished some great collaborative projects. She held the committee and partners to a high standard of accountability.

I know that as the DA of Hood River County she will continue to hold the system, partners and foremost herself to a high standard of professionalism, duty and accountability. You would be blessed to have her in this leadership position.
