Douglas County District Attorney Announces Re-Election Run
Douglas County District Attorney Dan Blank has officially announced he will run for re-election this year.
Blank has been the District Attorney for the last 25 years.
He says if he is re-elected, he will continue to make hard but fair decisions while being fiscally responsible with taxpayer money.
In a news release, Blank touches on the challenges he has faced- such as the heroin epidemic and methamphetamine. He says he continues to support and participate in the local Drug Court program. Blank notes that you can’t arrest your way out of the problem, but he will continue to try to strike a balance between punishment and treatment response.
He says his office is tough on the appropriate cases, but also believes in “second-chance” cases as a way to hold criminals accountable and offer them help they may need.
Blank has ran unopposed for 25 years.
