Today, Assistant Woodbury County Attorney, James Loomis, announced that he has received the endorsement of 86 active and retired law enforcement officers. Loomis launched his campaign to be the next Woodbury County Attorney on January 11, 2022, with the endorsement of over 30 retired and active law enforcement officers and the support continues to build. These men and women believe that James Loomis is the most qualified, has the most experience, and is best equipped to serve and lead the Woodbury County Attorney’s Office.
“It is humbling and rewarding to have the support and confidence of so many brave men and women who serve and have served to protect the families of Woodbury County,” Loomis said. “These endorsements are a reflection of a 19 year track record of engagement with law enforcement, effective communication, and building strong partnerships to hold criminals accountable,” said Loomis.
“It’s one thing to talk about what you are going to do and make ‘campaign promises’ and it is a far different thing to be able to point to 19 years of actually walking the walk,” added Loomis. “If elected to serve and lead as the next Woodbury County Attorney, I will continue to build these strong partnerships and increase engagement with law enforcement and community leaders through effective and open communication,” Loomis said.
“With increasing crime rates, Woodbury County needs a County Attorney that has the experience and the strong support from law enforcement to hold criminals accountable, get justice for victims and keep our families safe,” Loomis said. “Having the support of 86 law enforcement officers demonstrates my record of building strong partnerships and actively engaging with our law enforcement officers,” Loomis added. “I launched this campaign with these priorities and they will remain my priority in office because building strong partnerships, engaging with and openly communicating with law enforcement and community leaders is essential for the County Attorney’s Office to effectively serve ALL of Woodbury County and to keep our communities safe,” Loomis concluded.
As Assistant Woodbury County Attorney since 2003, James has worked tirelessly to protect Woodbury County families by holding criminals accountable, protecting victims of crime, and partnering with law enforcement. James announced his candidacy for Woodbury County Attorney on January 11, 2022.
