Elan Firpo welcomes Maggie Fleming to the race for the office of District Attorney for Humboldt County. Maggie was a part-time employee of the District Attorney when Elan came to the office five years ago, and there was a two year overlap before Maggie left. Elan knows Maggie to be a competent trial attorney and looks forward to debating Maggie on the complex issues a District Attorney faces, especially about the management of the office.
Elan Firpo, the one candidate running for Humboldt County District Attorney who is currently a prosecutor, is currently handling 4 murder cases and over 200 felonies. Elan is familiar with a heavy workload and time pressure. She spent 10 years as a design engineer (Graduate, Cal Poly), when she was responsible for teams of 15 to 50 employees, and she has overseen manufacturing facilities with more than 3000 workers. Elan Firpo is experienced hiring and firing, setting and meeting budgets, and assuring quality control.
In fact, Elan Firpo is the only candidate in the race with significant management accomplishments. Some have none at all. No wonder Elan Firpo is heavily supported by a business community that understands Elan will bring private sector innovation and efficiency to an office sorely in need.
