On June 11 from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m., the Mayor’s Veteran Action Council will host a forum for the county attorney candidates – Belnap and challenger Nathan Caplin.

In his 11 years as county attorney, Belnap has many notable accomplishments including bringing law enforcement agencies together to collaborate in teams such as the Washington County Drug Task Force, making significant advances in protecting victim’s rights, the prosecution of Warren Jeffs, and his fight against the BLM to keep roads in Washington County open to the public.
One of the county attorney’s most important responsibilities is to lead the prosecution of serious criminal cases throughout the county. Belnap’s office handles 3,000 criminal cases a year. Belnap is highly regarded by those on the front lines of fighting crime in the county: chiefs of police across the county, as well as Sheriff Cory Pulsipher endorse him for county attorney.
The county attorney also acts as the attorney to the County Commission. All three county commissioners have endorsed Belnap, as has Zachary Renstrom, Republican nominee for county commission.
Belnap has also been unanimously endorsed by the attorneys and staff of the Washington County Attorney’s Office.
