Pabst Reacts To Missoula Co. Attorney's Agreement With DOJ

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Missoula's next county attorney, Kirsten Pabst said Fred Van Valkenburg's agreement with the Department of Justice is a win-win situation for the county. Pabst remained tight-lipped about her thoughts on her predecessor's stance against the DOJ. She said now it's time to move forward.

"I think it's important to look at today as a new day and look forward and say, 'How can we continue to fight these challenges, how can we continue to enhance public safety, how can we continue to help close those gaps?' Like Mr. Van Valkenburg said earlier, we can always do better, we are committed to doing that, and I'm committed to doing that as well," Pabst said.

Pabst will take over for Van Valkenburg when he retires at the beginning of next year.
