Selection of Prosecuting Attorney Two candidates for the position of Okanogan County Prosecuting Attorney interviewed by Board of Commissioners. Candidate Moscowitz cited the need for leadership that will solve the problem of !revolving door” prosecutors in this county, emphasizing his own leadership ability, developed during 10 years with the military. He cited integrity, service, and excellence being 3 core values important in a Prosecuting Attorney. Candidate Albert Lin emphasized his ability to mentor younger attorneys, his experience in both the civil and criminal sides, and promised the Commissioners he would "remove the thorn from your side that has surrounded this office.” Commissioners unanimously appointed Albert Lin, stating that they need someone who can pick up the job immediately and citing Lin's previous experience as a civil deputy attorney in this county. Commissioners praise the high quality of both candidates, encouraging Mr. Moscowitz to apply if there are openings in the Prosecutor's office at a later time.
