Washington County Attorney to seek re-election
Washington County Attorney Pete Orput will seek a second term as the county’s top prosecutor.
Orput last week joined with three of his metro area colleagues to announce his bid for re-election. All four took office in 2011 and have worked together on public safety and criminal justice issues.
Orput said he and Anoka County Attorney Tony Palumbo, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi and Carver County Attorney Mark Metz collaborate regularly on numerous public safety initiatives.
