Retain Hauge as prosecutor

Retain Hauge as prosecutor

It should not surprise anyone that our Kitsap County Prosecutor, Russ Hauge, is not popular with scofflaws and those who think they are above the law. But Russ has earned the trust and respect of fellow prosecutors throughout the state, as well as the law enforcement legal and judicial community. He was the overwhelming choice in a poll of the Kitsap Bar Association, the people with the most first-hand knowledge.

Russ has had a leading role in helping Kitsap create a criminal justice system that ranks with the very best in the nation. The prosecutor’s office has worked closely with law enforcement officials and the judicial system to foster programs, such as the drug court, to help youthful and first-time offenders turn their lives around. The office has a full-time advocate for victims of human trafficking.

Under Russ Hauge, the prosecutor’s office has evolved into a key and integral part of a criminal justice system we can all be very proud of. Russ Hauge has earned the overwhelming support, trust and respect of those who know our criminal justice system best. Losing him would be a devastating loss for those of us who believe in a system of justice that is both fair and effective.
