From senior citizen scams, mortgage crisis, teenage trafficking, drug problems and more, Dwight Holton is the best choice for the citizens of Oregon.
Roy Jay, Director
Alliance of Minority Chambers

It is no secret that Dwight has a reputation as a highly skilled lawyer. Dwight is as capable in the courtroom as he is in a community forum. In my experience with him, Dwight’s ethics and integrity are beyond reproach. Dwight is tough, fair and compassionate. Dwight believes in justice for all people and has an innate desire to serve his fellow citizens. Beyond his profession, Dwight is a family man, devoted to his wife and children. Without hesitation, I offer my endorsement of Dwight Holton as Oregon’s next Attorney General.
James C. Ferraris, Former Assistant Chief of Police
Portland Police Bureau

Dwight is a respected leader in Oregon.  He is someone who gets out from behind a desk, he listens, and he works hard. Dwight will get  out in Oregon’s communities to see firsthand our local issues. He is passionate about making sure people are safe.  With Dwight as our Attorney General, we will know exactly what type of AG we are getting – a tough prosecutor with the right experience and the management skills to ensure the Oregon Department of Justice is a community action organization that moves this state forward.
Mayor Willis Van Dusen, Astoria

Dwight has seen it all. Rather than become jaded by his experiences, he has been inspired to make a difference, primarily for those who often lack access to the justice system. I am convinced that he will listen to citizens’ concerns and will work hard to address them.
Jon Stride, Attorney

Through his work as a federal prosecutor in Oregon, Dwight Holton has proven that he has the right experience to keep our communities safe. And the skill to be a strong advocate for the people of Oregon. His tough and smart approach to public safety is why I trust Dwight to be Oregon’s next Attorney General.
