The citizens of Larimer and Jackson counties would be well served by electing Mitch Murray as their next District Attorney. Mr. Murray’s ethics are above reproach and his legal skills are second to none. Victims, and those accused of criminal behavior, deserve to have an experienced and ethical prosecutor overseeing their cases. Mr. Murray is just such a prosecutor.
  Cliff Riedel - DA 8th Judicial District - 2013 - Present
Mitch is an outstanding prosecutor and administrative leader in the office of the district attorney. His experience is vital to the continuing success ensuring justice in our judicial district.
  Stu VanMeveren - DA 8th Judicial District - 1972 - 2005
While my tenure as District Attorney predates Mitch Murray's, his lengthy and distinguished career as a prosecutor for 29 years far exceeds mine. Nevertheless, I have followed his career throughout that time and I have been tremendously impressed by his skill as a trial lawyer, his commitment to see that justice is done, his exemplary record of community service and improvement of the criminal justice system.

Serving as District Attorney requires good judgment, fairness, honesty, legal skills, maturity, leadership, experience and management skills. Mitch has demonstrated achievement in each and every one of these categories. I endorse his candidacy without reservation and recommend his election as District Attorney of Colorado's Eighth Judicial District.
  David Wood - DA 8th Judicial District - 1970 - 1972
I have known Mitch for almost 30 years. I worked with him professionally as a prosecutor for 23 of those years. Mitch was appointed Chief Deputy for the Eighth Judicial District by District Attorney Stuart VanMeveren and subsequently as First Assistant to Cliff Riedel. While I was District Attorney he was often assigned the most serious and often technically complicated cases. Mitch has unquestionable integrity and a strong and dedicated work ethic. He has been, and continues to be, a competent and skilled advocate for the People of this Judicial District and State of Colorado. Mitch’s compassion for victims, dedication to the rule of law, and ability to exercise good judgement makes him a person this jurisdiction would be fortunate to have as its District Attorney.

I fully endorse Mitch as the next District Attorney for the Eighth Judicial District.

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith


A District Attorney's job isn't simply to prosecute - it's to seek justice on behalf of the people they serve. Mitch Murray has spent decades learning the intricacies of the criminal justice system in Larimer and Jackson Counties and he's demonstrated his commitment and fairness. Mitch will make a fine DA and I'm proud to offer my support!
