Welcome to the Valerie Asbell for District Attorney 2018 official campaign website! Please follow me on Facebook so I can stay connected with you throughout the campaign.
Since I was sworn in as District Attorney for Bertie, Hertford and Northampton Counties over 17 years ago, I have gained invaluable experience putting the needs of my community, as the forefront mission of my office. In 2014 District 6A and 6B were combined. After winning the 2014 election I took over as District Attorney for Halifax County as well. On January 1, 2019, District 6 will be renumbered as District 7, but I will continue to serve the same four counties. Only the district number will change.
Prior to becoming the Elected District Attorney, I served as an Assistant District Attorney in our community for over 7 years. Today, I am just as determined to serve as your District Attorney as I was when I first took office. I pledge to continue to actively seek justice for my district and constituents.
I am looking forward to continuing my service as your District Attorney for District 7, which includes Bertie, Halifax, Hertford, and Northampton Counties.
My goal has always been to instill the faith of the public in their District Attorney’s office. I have worked diligently to make this community a safer place to live by asking for and receiving substantial active sentences for murderers, habitual felons, drug dealers, child molesters, sex offenders and other serious felony offenders.
I have continuously fought for victims’ rights and have also been fair in my dealings, striking a good balance between toughness and compassion to all concerned. It has been an incredible privilege to be your District Attorney. Know that my office will always be open to the people I proudly serve.
I am asking for your support and your vote on May 8, 2018.
