A Part of My “Why”

Allow me to introduce myself with a little of my “why” for running for Vanderburgh County Prosecutor. The above picture is of my immediate family. On this day in 2009, we were being trained to assist my Dad who suffered a life-altering severe traumatic brain injury the year before in a motorcycle accident. Before that, he was a Navy veteran, a talented sheet metal journeyman and foreman for Industrial Contractors, and the best dad in the world (and still is). My mother grew up legally blind, was a homemaker, and a certified genius. Mom worked hard to make sure we had good grades, never beat her in scrabble, and quite literally fed the neighborhood. Despite their challenges, my parents set an example of hard work and dedication to their community. Growing up, it was not uncommon for us to see our parents quietly help other neighborhood children in need, volunteer, and donate money. Because of my Mom and Dad’s example of selfless dedication to their family and others, I strive to offer any gifts I have—this is part of why I have dedicated my career to public service work and why I want to use my leadership skills and experience as a trial attorney to make a difference in Vanderburgh County as your Prosecutor. I look forward to meeting you and showing you why I’m the best person for the job!  Be sure to follow along at www.DianaforProsecutor.com.
