Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel announced Monday he will not seek reelection to a third term.
Hummel’s term runs through the end of 2022.
“Serving as your District Attorney has been a privilege and an honor. Every morning when I walk the three flights up to my office I think about the important work that my colleagues in your DA’s office and I have to do that day for the people of Deschutes County,” he said in a statement. “During my final 16 months in office, I’ll continue to work tirelessly to ensure that justice is done daily. Thank you for allowing me to represent you.”
Absent a November run-off, the election in May of 2022 will decide who takes office in January of 2023 as Deschutes County’s next district attorney.
This is a developing story.
