Below is the text from the survey we have asked Oregon's elected district attorneys to fill out.
Earlier this year, the ACLU of Oregon launched a campaign designed to increase the public’s knowledge of district attorneys (DAs) in the state. Reserach shows that voters have a limited understanding of the role DAs play in the state’s criminal justice system. Also, given the way DAs individually and collectively lobby around statewide policies, the ACLU will work to help the public better understand the policy positions of individual DAs and your Association on issues of voter concern.
The purpose of the survey is to:
1) Better understand your current positions on several state policy issues that affect Oregon’s justice system. We think it is important for elected leaders to be transparent about where they stand on policy issues.
2) Gather feedback from DAs about what metrics you think are important in evaluating the success of your work.
Completing this survey might take 15 minutes. We have roughly 50,000 members and supporters in Oregon, many of whom are your constituents. Please consider your time and commitment to completing this survey as part of your commitment to transparency and constituent engagement.
