Governor Brown Appoints New District Attorney
Longtime Clackamas DA John Foote recently announced retirement

In the wake of the 'catch-and-release' policies of Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, it appears that progressives who wish to see the same elsewhere may be spreading their lawlessness into neighboring Clackamas County.

District Attorney-elect Wentworth will now be assuming the office of District Attorney of Clackamas County early in order to fill the vacancy that has been created by the retirement of the current Clackamas County District Attorney, John Foote.

The Governor thanked District Attorney Foote for his many years of dedicated service to the people of Clackamas County.

Governor Kate Brown will appoint John Wentworth to be District Attorney of Clackamas County, effective January 1, 2021. Wentworth recently won election as District Attorney for a term that starts January 4, 2021. Longtime Clackamas County District Attorney John Foote recently announced his retirement, effective December 31, 2020. With this appointment, Wentworth will be able to assume the office a few days early, to ensure a smooth transition in the District Attorney’s office.

The bad leadership of Multnomah county has brought national disgrace recently to the area surrounding Portland for many violent acts that commonly occur there. The refusal to prosecute those criminals seems to be an obvious potential reason. Observers in Clackamas County Oregon are hoping that the lawlessness does not spread their way.
