Christopher J. Parosa Appointed as Lane County's New District Attorney by Oregon GovernorSource: Google Street View

In a stride that resonates with the choice of Lane County voters, Christopher J. Parosa was named as the county’s next District Attorney by Oregon’s governor. According to the official news release from Governor Tina Kotek's office, Parosa, who garnered favor with a sweeping 67% in the May primary election, will step in to fill the opening left by Patricia Perlow, who is set to retire.

Having commanded a commanding majority vote, Parosa's appointment comes across as a nod to the voter’s trust and perhaps a promise on continuity and the delivery of justice with the community's prevailing sentiments in mind. His appointment becomes effective as of June 28, marking a transition in leadership at a time when the role of district attorneys and their impact on local communities is under the microscope more than ever.
