I fully support Jon Budelmann because he is a career long prosecutor. I have been a part of law enforcement in this county for many years, working on several hundred felony cases almost all of which were prosecuted by Jon. I have watched Jon work tirelessly from early morning to as late as midnight preparing cases to insure that people who commit serious crimes in our county are held accountable. Jon chose, early in his career, to prosecute felons and seek prison sentences for them; Mr. Strods chose to defend them and fight to keep them out of prison. These are observations I have made personally. Mr. Strods’ claim is that Jon wastes money by not giving five minute plea deals. A short trip down Genesee Street makes it clear that a few of the local defense bar want those five minute plea deals from Mr. Strods.
Let’s continue holding criminals accountable, and keep Jon Budelmann our DA.
