racineElizabeth “Dalia” Racine/Assistant District Attorney

I am running for District Attorney because I believe that “Douglas Deserves Better.” I dedicated my entire legal career to prosecution. I handled homicide, rape, child abuse, human trafficking, animal abuse, robbery, and many other types of cases during my tenure. Throughout my career, I learned what it takes to have an effective and efficient District Attorney’s Office. That’s why I believe Douglas Deserves Better!

Better Approach to Crime Prevention– As District Attorney, I will be SMART on crime. I will implement effective programs that work. By having tough alternative sentencing options we will work to break the recidivism cycle. In addition, by using programs that are effective we decrease our costs within the criminal justice system and become fiscally responsible to our citizens.

Better Integrity– We need to restore the trust of Douglas County in the District Attorney’s office. We deserve a District Attorney that will be ethical and honest for ALL of Douglas County.

Better Staffing– I will have prosecutors that are specially trained in vital areas such as Crimes against Women and Children, Elder Abuse, Animal Cruelty and Public Integrity. I will establish a presence in the Juvenile Court System, the most integral court to intervene and divert children from becoming a part of the adult criminal justice system.

It is for all these reasons and more that “Elizabeth Dalia Racine is the Right Choice for Douglas County!”
