I just got word that the last remaining deputy district attorney in Eagle, Tyra Welch, is moving to Jefferson County. In total, 7 attorneys have left the Office of the DA for the 5th J.D. I hope Bruce Brown is out there recruiting new deputies; he’s going to need it. A little turnover is expected with a new administration, but the people of Eagle County are going to suffer, at least in the short term, as a result of chaos in that office.
[Update: there will be one district court attorney, Joe Kirwan, and one county court attorney that just graduated from law school representing the DA’s Office in Eagle starting on Tuesday.]
