Jimmie Harp Announces He Will Seek a Third Term
Etowah County District Attorney Jimmie Harp has announced that he will seek a third term as Etowah County’s top prosecutor. 49-year-old Harp began his career in the Etowah County District Attorney’s Office in 1994, was elected to his first term in 2004, and re-elected to his second term in 2010. Harp believes that the biggest challenge that he and other district attorneys face now is a terrible shortfall in funds allocated by the State to prosecute crime. He says, “We have never had to do more with less”.
