FAIRFIELD — District Attorney Donald A. du Bain’s contribution Wednesday of $75,000 to his campaign raises to $225,000 the amount he has given to his campaign in recent weeks.

Du Bain’s campaign coffers also include more than $80,000 left from a personal loan he made to his 2010 campaign that has been sitting in the bank. It brings his own spending for his campaign to more than $300,000. He previously made $75,000, $30,000 and $20,000 contributions to his campaign.

Prosecutor Krishna A. Abrams, Du Bain’s opponent, loaned her campaign $5,000 earlier this week. Abrams last week received a pair of $5,000 donations from the Fairfield Police Officers Association and the Solano County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association. She also recently received a $1,000 contribution from the Solano County Sheriff’s Custody Association and another $1,000 from a Roseville law firm.

Du Bain also recently received a $4,000 contribution from Theodore Janus of San Francisco.

The latest endorsements of the district attorney candidates include du Bain receiving the backing of the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce, chamber officials announced. Abrams on Wednesday received the endorsement of the Solano County Farm Bureau, according Ryan Mahoney, farm bureau president.

    Even after daddy's money rich pampered boy DuBain is booted from office, he and his dreadful misconduct in office will continue to cost taxpayers!---This despite DuBain's broken empty and unfulfilled previous campaign promises. Remember--- Dubain vowed to bring integrity and cost effectiveness to the Office in which he was sworn into! He and his beleagured inner circle are a malstrom of now proven malfeasence and misconduct that will of bog down the courts and juris prudence for quite some time into the bleak judicial future. Dubain's disgraced Office needs some sunshine and disinfectant.

    The fact is, DuBain is the only qualified person in this race. If there were a viable alternative I might rethink Mr. DuBain's continuance in office. Again, re-elect Dubain, and throw the Sheriff out.

    How about throw both of them out for good cause---DuBain's misconduct and Ferrara's misconduct!

    300K! What are you compensating for du Bain? It must take lots of money to cover up corruption and distract voters from increasing crime in Solano. Guess with this new influx of cash, du Bain will overload our mailboxes with false and misleading campaign flyers. Like the one showing a picture of him talking to police but not actually having support from law enforcement, LOL! What a joke!

    Hoodwink, get your facts straight, please. There is not one misleading or false statement made on any flyers. I know the work he has done in the community is overwhelming but it's all true. The photos of him talking to law enforcement are Solano County law enforcement. He has law enforcement support. What he doesn't have his the law enforcement union representatives' support. Clearly, that missed you but I'm happy to have been able to explain the FACTS.

    DuBain is the clear choice. He has served this county and law enforcement well. It's unfortunate that a few POA's spoke for the majority by endorsing his opponent. Don LIVES in the county he serves, actually cares about the Solano community and works tirelessly with the community to make it a safer place. This is why the ENTIRE collective body of community leaders have endorsed him. If they didn't believe in him, see the work he has done, worked hand in hand with him and applaud his efforts, they would have endorsed the opponent. Let's be real here for a minute. Don got a lot of bad press early on in this race from the DR for the Sheriff's debacle. It's not inexpensive to get the message out on ALL the GOOD he has done for Solano County. To meet Don du Bain is to vote for Don du Bain. He's a good man that is in this fight for the right reasons. I can't really say that about the opportunist, I mean, the opponent.
