District Attorney Candidate Maggie Fleming has been racking up the donations ($61287.00) and endorsements, and she looks to be the next shoe in for the “people” of Humboldt. She can be considered fair, balanced and progressive, if not for her endorsements……
Suzie Owsley, Bill Nova, Jim Armstrong, William “Billy” Hosal II, Frank Jager, Melinda and Pete Ciarebellini, Ken McCauley, “Retired Police Officers Association (Murl Harpham)”, and Susan Strom. Talk about the Old Guard at EPD. These folks are on the list of the whose-who that perpetuated libel and slander to get rid of the only progressive Chief at EPD in the last…150 years!
“As the true agent of change and accountability”, she has the backing of the police unions from; Eureka, Fortuna and the Humboldt County Sheriffs. We’re sure it’s in their best interests to endorse the person that will fully hold them accountable. On top of that, the California District Attorney Investigators’ Association (CDAIA) has also thrown in their hat for Fleming. Wayne Cox (former EPD and now Chief Investigator) should feel confident in his standing with a Fleming win.
It goes on and on with the Fleming Good Old Boy establishment campaign. Sad to see the wool being pulled over the public’s eyes so early in this campaign. Of course, we wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t include Linda Atkins as one of Fleming’s supporters. Luckily, Atkins can hold her head high with her endorsement of Fleming, alongside another true (D) democrat, the very liberal Rex Bohn.
Don’t despair citizens of Humboldt, Fleming’s election will mean price support for the local marijuana industry and jobs jobs jobs!
