Mary Robnett, non-partisan candidate for Pierce County Prosecutor, has secured another key law enforcement endorsement. The Washington State Patrol Troopers Association (WSPTA) announced it is endorsing Robnett, joining the Pierce County Deputy Sheriffs Guild, the Pierce County Corrections and Sergeants Guild, and former Pierce County Prosecutor Gerry Horne.
“Police and prosecutors work closely together in stressful situations and difficult cases. I have so much respect for law enforcement officers, including our State Patrol Troopers, and the difficult and often heroic work they do,” Robnett said. “I’m pleased to earn WSPTA’s endorsement because it helps drive the point home that we need a professional prosecutor heading the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office again.”
In conferring his group’s endorsement, Doug Clevenger of the WSPTA said: “Mary Robnett is the real deal. When our members are out there keeping the community safe and making important arrests, they need to know these cases are being turned over to a professional prosecutor with the right experience. That’s Mary Robnett, through and through.”
