Alexander Lyerly's Statement

It has been my privilege to have worked with outstanding District Attorneys, from Clyde Roberts, Tom Rusher, Phil Thomas, and Jerry Wilson.  Each of these gentlemen have served the citizens of this district and this Great State.  Likewise, they have endeavored to hire Assistant District Attorneys who cover all five counties in this Judicial District.  When District Attorney Wilson told me that he was retiring at the end of his term I wished him well, and that he would be missed.  Mr. Wilson and I spoke of who would be likely candidates for this very important position.  We both agreed that his Chief Prosecutor Britt Springer had a proven record.  Chief Prosecutor Springer has all of the qualities for the District Attorney: knowledge of the Law, the skills to prosecute those who would violate the laws, and the wisdom to do the job without delay or without favor.
