ASTORIA – Dave Goldthorpe was in an Astoria courtroom last week so couldn’t catch the call that came in from the governor’s office.
“When I saw the missed call, I closed the door to my office to get some privacy and returned the call,” Goldthorpe said. “My stomach was in knots because at this point I still didn’t know if this was a call to ask me to serve or to convey consolation.”
He was asked to serve – winning appointment to be Malheur County’s next district attorney.
Goldthorpe, 35, currently is a senior deputy district attorney in the Clatsop County district attorney’s . . .
