Elect Lanee Danforth for Lincoln County District Attorney
My name is Lanee Danforth and I am running for Lincoln County District Attorney. I am currently a Deputy District Attorney in the Lincoln County DA’s Office. Throughout my career I have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to justice, safety and building community partnerships.
I am running for District Attorney because I believe Lincoln County deserves a DA who is trustworthy, passionate, committed and fair. Lincoln County is a beautiful place to live and it is filled with wonderful people who do amazing things. We are all striving for the same goal, a safe and healthy community for our families, friends and visitors. To make that goal a reality, Lincoln County needs a DA who is passionate and fully committed to seeking justice, whatever that may look like.
Current and former colleagues as well as community partners describe me as firm but fair. When warranted, I have sought and obtained lengthy prison sentences for violent offenders. When appropriate, I have also given second chances to non-violent offenders. Each case deserves careful evaluation and scrutiny to ensure a fair outcome for victims, defendants, and the community.
As District Attorney I will cultivate and lead an office that seeks the truth and pursues justice while at the same time being professional, transparent and accountable to the citizens of Lincoln County. Please vote for me to be the next Lincoln County DA!

What does a District Attorney do?
The District Attorney (DA) is the top law enforcement official in the county. They represent the public in criminal matters by filing charges where warranted by the law and avaiable evidence. The DA is equally responsible for seeking justice for crime victims while also protecting a defendant’s right to due process and a fair trial.
The DA is elected to serve a 4-year term and is accountable to the public. It is important to have a DA with integrity and the highest ethical standards.
