22 hours until Klein can go start writing letters to the editor for Maggie.
Thank goodness. At least we'll finally be rid of Klein and Dollison and be able to have more constructive debates.
I would encourage everyone to vote, and vote for Maggie Fleming.It is still possible that Fleming could get 51%.Fleming is the only hope to restore the DA's office.Just think how Eureka, Arcata, and Humboldt County in general have changed during the reign of PVG ? Take a drive down Broadway or a stroll around the Plaza in Arcata. Not saying that it's all Gallegos' fault but his incompetence has resulted in the gutting of the office and rendering it ineffective and somewhat of a joke.There is a reason such a wide swath of the county is supporting Fleming; retired judges, local lawyers, public defenders, court personnel, cops, and regular working citizens. If you are undecided take 20-30 minutes and check out all four websites.
Maybe Fleming can kill the Child Abuse Services Team completely this time.Vote for Fleming. A vote for incompetent Corruption.
Fleming gave us a taste of how she would run the office in how she ran her campaign. No thanks.
To 1:35, please, repeating a falsehood that you've heard does not make it true. If you have an instance for your accusation it would be helpful if you would provide it.Same for 1:37. Many people have noted that Fleming has run a clean campaign, has not commented on others' cases, and has asked her supporters to stick to talking about what they see as her qualifications for the job, rather than criticizing the opponents. And if you read the testimonials and letters to the editor you will see the enthusiasm with which they have responded.There are some carefully crafted (and endlessly repeated and reworked) accusations made about her, but they don't hold water when you actually look at the so-called evidence, or the strings of provocative sound bites with no logical connection to each other or to Fleming. Some examples are: the 460 forms (posted on LOCO), which show an amazing breadth and diversity of support and a lack of "big money" or "old guard" donors; the documents regarding the CAST program, which show that Gallegos was the problem and Fleming worked hard trying to fix it; the idea that she has anything to do with the salaries of the DA Investigators, where it turns out that the occasional large payouts include substantial amounts of back pay for people retiring (transparentcalifornia.com); the endorsements in general from law enforcement, which in reality have to do with respect, not political favors; the part-time claims, where 38 paid hours (in response to the County's request that people help the budget by furloughing) were far fewer than the hours she actually worked; and so on and so on.No matter what happens with this election, Maggie Fleming will remain the same talented, dedicated, compassionate and tolerant person she's always been.It would be a shame if people fall for the negative campaigning and lose track of the fact that Fleming is well suited to be D.A. of this county.
Man the flemming and firpo trolls are out in force on every thread here today.. Only firpos have really hit loco today. My vote tomorrow goes to whom ever trolls the most today.
Calling other candidate's supporters trolls does not change the fact that yours is a loser.
The many people who note Fleming has run a clean campaign obviously don't know Max Cardoza, Mike Losey, Joel Meilke, Jack Bernstein or Kathleen Bryson. AKA Fleming's hit squad.The also haven't watched the debates where Maggie has dishonestly portrayed Firpo on a regular basis. She is worse than Arnie. At least Arnie puts his name behind it.
Jack Bernstein is supporting Maggie?That might be news to his bff Arnie. Arnie will find out tomorrow his friends are voting either for Maggie or Elan.
Fleming's 460s?Dazy's Supply $500.00 So Hum pot money.No Old Guard attorneys and cops? Look again. Her 460s are a department roster.Good try though. You are a loyal scout.
I haven't made up my mind on who to vote for. So I guess you are right we do have a sorry bunch to pick from so who ever wins is a loser. Is that what you were saying because I have no candidate. So who was is you were referring to just so that I can differentiate when it comes time to go to the polls tomorrow?
Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
