Jason Woodbury announces 2014 run for Carson City District Attorney against Corrupt Assistant DA Mark Krueger
Mark Kruger is currently employed by the corrupt Carson City DA Neil Rombardo:
Krueger is one of 10 Plaintiffs in a complaint filed in July against the Lyon County Commission, County Manager and Comptroller. The complaint contests a recent decision by the County to freeze a 2.5-percent merit pay hike for certain non-union employees. (See related stories on NewsDesk below). The complaint was filed through Krueger’s private Carson City practice.
“Being elected District Attorney of Carson City would fulfill a dream I have had since I first set foot in a courtroom,” said Woodbury, 41, in a news release. “This is my first run for office, and no one is going to mistake me for a smooth politician. My only campaign strategy is to give this community an honest, straightforward look at who I am and what I stand for. I hope once they see my experience and our common values, Carson City voters will be convinced I am the right choice for District Attorney.”
Carson City District Attorney Neil A. Rombardo said in September that he was not going to to run for re-election.
Woodbury has spent his entire legal career practicing in Carson City, beginning in 1998 when he was hired as law clerk for Judge Michael Griffin. He joined the Carson City District Attorney’s Office as a Deputy District Attorney from 1999 to 2003 before entering private practice.
Woodbury is a partner in the law firm Kaempfer Crowell, where he works primarily in civil litigation and criminal defense.
“My experience as a prosecutor is important — voters need to know they have a D.A. with the skill to enforce justice on behalf of the community. But that skill must be guided by seasoned judgment — the ability to recognize what justice is in a particular case and the background to calculate the most efficient and effective way to achieve that just result. During 10 plus years of private practice, I have represented businesses — from one person shops to the largest industries in Nevada. And I have represented individuals, including some charged with a criminal offense. My broad legal background would be a positive foundation for the Carson City District Attorney’s office,” Woodbury said in his news release.
Woodbury is a graduate of the University of Nevada in Reno, and completed law school at the University of Utah. He and his wife, Stacy, live in Carson City where they are raising three children.
“I am honored to have the support of many wonderful people who call Carson City home. I hope voters grant me an opportunity to serve this community which has been so good to me and my family,” Woodbury said.
The public is invited to a meet and greet Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Glen Eagles Restaurant.
