Linn County District Attorny
I was raised in a small farming community in Idaho where I learned the importance of honesty and hard work. I have been prosecuting criminals since 2001. In that capacity I have tried all kinds of cases from murder, to harassment. As a deputy district attorney I spent time working on the major drug crime team, domestic violence team, Sexual Assault Response Team, and instructed at the Oregon Police Academy.
As Linn County’s District Attorney, I have served on the Linn County Public Safety Coordinating Council, as Chair of the Education Subcommittee for the Linn County Child Abuse Network, a Board Member of The Luke Center for Catalytic Leadership, and recently was elected by District Attorneys throughout Oregon to serve a Director in the Oregon District Attorney’s Association.
Obtaining justice for victims is a high priority for me. During my career, I was twice chosen as Victim Advocate of the Year: in Lincoln County in 2001, and in Linn County in 2009.
My wife Elizabeth and I have five children: four daughters and one son. We enjoy traveling, camping, and fishing. In my spare time, I enjoy woodworking and doing household projects.
How I can Help
If you are willing to have a campaign yard sign put up on one or more of your properties then please send an e-mail (see below) with your name and address and any specifics on where we can put the sign up on your property.
Doug would be willing to come and speak to your civic, neighborhood, religious or volunteer organization about public safety and Linn County. To schedule Doug to come and speak, please e-mail him using the address below.
One of the best things you can do for the campaign is to advocate on my behalf to your friends and neighbors through Facebook, Twitter, and word of mouth.
Our campaign is organized into a number of sub-committees. Many hands make light work, so we would love to have your assistance. We could use your help to canvass neighborhoods and distribute campaign literature. Just send an e-mail with your phone number and we will contact you to get you onto our team.
Place a campaign bumper sticker on your vehicle. Request your bumper sticker(s) by e-mailing below.

As required by campaign finance laws, please include on your check or on a separate piece of paper: your name, address, phone number, and occupation.
Donate $50 to $100 at no cost to you. In Oregon, you can donate money to a campaign and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit up to $50; otherwise, that money will simply go to the state government as a tax. For individuals, the tax credit is $50 and for couples it is $100.
So, if you contribute $50 to my campaign in 2016, and you owe $4,000 to the Oregon Department of Revenue in taxes, – you will now owe $3,950. You save $50 dollars off your taxes and you helped support my campaign to serve as Linn County’s District Attorney.
