for Cache County Attorney
My wife Keri Merrill Swink, a Smithfield native, and I live in Providence where we are raising our five children. We feel fortunate to be able to live in Cache Valley and be able to raise our children in such a beautiful and safe community.
My legal career has been devoted to public service and I feel deeply, as your County Attorney, the responsibility to keep our schools and community safe. I have worked closely with law enforcement for over 16 years in providing community education, developing alternative treatment programs, and enforcing the law to keep our schools, highways, and neighborhoods safe.
I also feel deeply the continuous need to protect the County in its day to day operations and provide sound legal counsel to county departments and offices. With the support of the County Council, my office has been able to reallocate legal services to better serve county departments. This has resulted in being able to address legal questions in a more effective and timely manner.
It has been a privilege to serve as your County Attorney the last five years. It is my desire to continue as your County Attorney and to work harder than ever in protecting the quality of life that we are so blessed to have here in Cache County. Please cast your vote in my favor this election year.
Your County Attorney
James M. Swink
