Lambert and Cromwell running for Gallatin County Attorney



Montana – For the job of Gallatin County Attorney, there are two contenders. Marty Lambert, the incumbent, wants to keep his job despite Audrey Cromwell’s efforts to unseat him.

Cromwell has served as a temporary justice court judge for seven years, and Lambert has been the county attorney for 26 years.

When asked why they were running for county attorney, the candidates said…

“It’s important that the people of Gallatin County have law enforcement- have someone in the county attorney’s office who backs law enforcement and who backs crime victims,” says Lambert.

“I think that there are deficiencies in the county attorney’s office that a good leader can remedy, and I believe that the county and the public needs better services than what we are receiving,” says Cromwell.

Both recognize the expanding workload in the legal department, but they approach it from different angles.

“So, we really need to increase the manpower of the office in order to meet the growing needs of our community,” says Cromwell.

“That leads to delay in getting cases through the system, experience -having and experienced county attorney I’ve been a prosecutor for 39 years, and county attorney for 26 years- experience is the key to making the best of the situation,” says Lambert.

The next attorney, in the eyes of both contestants. This is their argument to voters about why they ought to support them… “I’m best able to using my experience and working with the outstanding deputies who serve the public and who are serving for me,” says Lambert.

“For the future of Gallatin County, a vote for the stabilization of the office and really pulling in some of these more modern practices, evidence-based practices that the community really needs,” says Cromwell.
