Ruth McQuade '79 is running for prosecutor of Jefferson County, WV.

From the Herald-Mail: "She said if elected she will make the prosecutor’s office "visible to the public.” That would include a website that would routinely inform the public on the status of criminal cases in the system, she said.

"The public should know how many criminal cases are filed, for what kind of crime and most importantly, what was the result? It’s the only way for the public to judge whether or not law enforcement and the prosecutor are being successful in combating crime in this county,” she said."

Today Ruth McQuade has a solo practice handling environmental cases, and representing children in abuse and neglect cases. She worked as an attorney in the West Virginia attorney general’s office, and she worked as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Department of Justice handling mail fraud, conspiracy and money-laundering cases for 20 years. She also worked for a year in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Martinsburg prosecuting drug, gun, bank robbery and sexual assault cases.
