As chief deputy of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, Jim Walsh oversaw the criminal prosecution of the most violent criminals, and the criminal appeals for the entire state.
Of course, going after criminals is an important function, and one to which County Attorney Walsh has been passionately committed, but it is by no means the only important function of his Office. Many of the other chief responsibilities owed to the taxpayers are civil, not criminal, and Jim Walsh has significant experience in these areas; namely, consumer protection, senior and child protection, representation of county officials and the County in civil matters, and management of an efficient office.
Despite political differences with the sheriff, Jim and his office have a great working relationship with the deputies and cops on the street. He takes their cases and he gets convictions.
Jim Walsh was brought in by the Board of Supervisors at a time of serious problems. He cleaned up the office and turned it into one of the top producers in the state. We are proud of Jim’s record and the citizens of Pinal County who do their homework and look behind the political hype should be too.
