Dear Editor,

This is a message to the 11th Judicial District Residents,

As the current District Attorney serving Fremont, Chaffee, Custer, and Park counties, Kaitlin Turner has done an excellent job at improving lines of communications between the D.A.’s Office and local law enforcement. She has earned the respect and support from law enforcement officials serving the counties in her district. None of this is surprising to the staff working at the Federal Correctional Complex located in Florence.

I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Turner for eight years at the prison complex and, through my position in the Union, I was able to become well acquainted with her.

She did an outstanding job of helping our sworn federal law enforcement officers defend themselves when faced with frivolous complaints and lawsuits filed by inmates. She went above and beyond in both her communications with staff and her defense of staff. I know her to be honest, transparent, and extremely hard working. The District would be lucky to keep her as District Attorney. I and AFGE Local 1169 wholeheartedly endorse Kaitlin Turner in her bid for election as the District Attorney for the 11th Judicial District.

Richard Arko

Union President Local 1169
