10 law enforcement officers/retirees endorse Lake for prosecutor

Letter submitted


As law enforcement officers with decades of experience working to keep our community safe, we believe the choice for LaPorte County Prosecutor is clear: John Lake is the candidate we trust to lead the Office of LaPorte County Prosecutor, and we are proud to give him our endorsement.

As a deputy prosecutor for 23 years in the LaPorte County Prosecutor’s Office, John Lake effectively collaborated with police departments throughout LaPorte County to keep criminals off of our streets. He has done so with unfailing availability, professionalism, work ethic, compassion for victims and a strong commitment to public safety.

Since 2014, Lake successfully prosecuted five murder cases, including a cold case from 1983, which stands as a testament to his dedication and readiness to tackle and try cases no matter how difficult they may be. Lake is also the only candidate to have successfully tried criminal cases in all five of LaPorte County’s courts.  He has the experience, integrity, and leadership the prosecutor’s office and LaPorte County needs.

We know that John Lake is the best choice for our elected Prosecutor. With an impeccable record over many years of service to LaPorte County, he has earned our trust and most importantly, our votes. We ask you to join us in supporting John Lake and make him our prosecutor on May 8!
