Washington County Attorney Pete Orput wants to change how cases are assigned to prosecutors in his office. Bulletin photo by Mike Longaecker

For Washington County attorney, big plans and tight budget


Pete Orput promised himself he would not call for any changes within his first 90 days in office.

Orput admits he has already broken that promise, but submits that it's a minor change: the newly elected Washington County attorney has encouraged his staff to partake in casual Fridays - provided they are not in trial or meeting with witnesses.
