The current Ector County Attorney wants to keep her job.

County Attorney Kathy Linch announced she's running for re-election.

When she first ran for office, she promised better prosecution of D-W-I, domestic violence, and hot check crimes, and she wants to continue those goals.

"I made a commitment to aggressively prosecute domestic violence cases, and we have worked very closely with law enforcement in this area.  If you commit family violence in Ector County, you will go to jail, and you will be prosecuted, whether the victim wants to persue charges or not.  It is our job to stand up for people who cannot stand up for themselves," Linch said.

Linch will be facing off with Cindy Weir-Nutter who announced her bid last Thursday.
