We stand behind Lake for Prosecutor

As seasoned former prosecutors with knowledge of what is required to fulfill the role of elected prosecutor and extensive experience working with both candidates, we join together today to announce our endorsement for the Office of La Porte County Prosecuting Attorney. Based on our decades of experience leading and working in and with the prosecutor’s office, we understand the qualities needed for the job, and believe the choice for La Porte County Prosecutor is overwhelmingly clear: John Lake is the candidate we trust and stand behind to deliver justice for all in La Porte County.

John Lake is the most qualified person to lead the office. He will lead by example and take serious cases to trial himself. As a deputy prosecutor in the La Porte County Prosecutor’s Office for 23 years, Lake developed lasting relationships with his fellow prosecutors, judges, attorneys, staff, court personnel  and law enforcement agencies. He has represented the people and victims of La Porte County with unsurpassed dedication, and has set a standard for professionalism in the many jury trials he has successfully tried in every Court of La Porte County, achieving an unsurpassed 99 percent conviction rate in more than 100 jury and bench trials in his career. His deference to law enforcement officers taking the lead in their investigations has earned him their respect. Lake’s work ethic, preparation, professionalism, unblemished record and dedication to justice for all make it an easy choice for us to endorse him.

John Lake has earned our trust, our respect and most importantly, our votes. Join us in supporting John Lake and make him our Prosecutor on May 8.
