Maggie Fleming’s Guiding Principals
The professional conduct and effort of employees of the District Attorney’s Office will reflect the fact that serving the public of Humboldt County is a privilege.
All involved in the criminal justice system will be treated with professionalism and respect.
Cases will be consistently and fairly evaluated; well-organized and complete case files will be maintained.
The negotiation of cases with defense attorneys will be founded on knowledge of the facts, knowledge of the law, and knowledge of sentencing options; open lines of communication with defense attorneys will be maintained.
High-quality mentoring for less-experienced prosecutors will be provided.
A professional, respectful working environment will be maintained.
Attorneys who can follow the prosecutor’s duty to seek justice will be recruited and retained.
That sounds like just what Humboldt County needs. These Guiding Principles and some big name endorsements is probably why Fleming is seen in most quarters as the front runner.
The selling point being spread around, by her more conservative supporters (not the campaign, so we are told) to convince other conservative voters is; if Fleming is elected she will bring in former candidate for DA Allison Jackson as an Assistant DA.
This rumor coupled with a recent sighting of Local “eccentric” Attorney Kathleen Bryson accompanying Fleming going door to door in Eureka, has some supporters saying, “huh?’
Anyone out there care to enlighten the Examiner and our readers on this?
