Letter to the editor: Kellner is choice for DA


I was very concerned reading George Brauchler’s recent article in The Denver Post about sharply rising crime rates. Denver, for example, is on pace for its most murders in a decade. Compared to the first six months of 2019, Aurora has seen a 400% increase in filed murder cases this year. There are worrisome longer-term trends as well, such as a 118% rise in violent crime in Douglas County over the last five years.

Resisting and reversing these trends is why I believe it is crucial we elect John Kellner for district attorney of Douglas, Arapahoe, Elbert and Lincoln counties.

John served our country as a Marine, achieved great success in prosecuting criminals in our region (including being named “Prosecutor of the Year” in 2016 by the Colorado District Attorneys Council), and is ready to protect and represent us as our next district attorney.

John’s strong experience in criminal prosecution will keep our communities safer. Using this experience, he will implement proactive policies to deter criminals and reduce gun violence, as well as support law enforcement agencies in keeping us safe.

School safety is also a core focus for John. He will ensure schools have the resources they need to promote safety and prevent violence. He believes in early intervention and collaboration with our community to achieve that.

We live in a great community, but to preserve it we must proactively reverse these dangerous crime trends. John Kellner is the right experienced, courageous servant leader to help us accomplish this!
