Democrat Attorney General Candidate

Posted: Updated:

The latest crime statistics report is fueling the campaign for the Democratic candidate for North Dakota Attorney General.

Kiara Kraus-Parr will be challenging 13-year incumbent Wayne Stenehjem for the office of state attorney general.

The position oversees law enforcement and the state bank and also has a seat on the Industrial and Agriculture commissions.

She says the continued increase in crime may be attributed to the growing population, but it should also be matched with an increase in funding for the state crime lab and law enforcement.

She says the state needs to invest in the future --- both through people and through infrastructure in the state.

(Kiara Kraus-Parr, (D) Candidate for North Dakota Attorney General) "I think it's ridiculous that you wouldn't spend resources to combat what is a serious issue across the state. There's no problems getting funding for the things they think are important, but why isn't this important? I'm very motivated, very passionate to do the job."

Kraus-Parr is a graduate of the University of North Dakota law school and continues to practice in Grand Forks.
