◼ Bryson out of DA race
Humboldt County District Attorney candidate Kathleen Bryson is dropping out of the race.
Bryson made the announcement today, saying the campaign was “taking too much time away from my family and legal practice.” She said the time away was affecting her elementary school-aged daughter and said that a serious car accident involving her older daughter was part of what made her change course.
Sorry to hear this.

After much thought and discussion with my family, I have made the decision to drop out of the campaign for Humboldt County District Attorney.
While I am grateful for the opportunity, the campaign was taking too much time away from my family and legal practice. I am only 44 years old, the youngest of the da candidates, and our children are school-age. In particular, our youngest daughter is in elementary school, and my many hours away from home were taking too much of a toll on her. In addition, recently, our eldest daughter suffered a very serious car accident that has put matters into perspective for our entire family.
I want to thank all the people who contributed their time, money and moral support to my campaign. I also want to thank the other candidates for their open dialogue in relation to the issues. The experience of running for public office has given me profound respect for those who sacrifice their time and privacy to be our public officials.
