All of the first responder groups that have provided an endorsement in the race for district attorney have endorsed one candidate. Never before has there been a consensus of these groups, yet these nonpartisan groups feel it is their duty and obligation to come before the public and let those that they serve know, in no uncertain terms, that there is only one clear choice for district attorney and that is Krishna Abrams.
These first responders are the very people who you have come to count on in your time of need. These men and women are the same people who run into burning buildings, bring your loved ones back from the brink of death and respond to your house in the middle of the night when someone is trying to harm you.
If you know a crime victim or a first responder, ask them when they met with the current district attorney; when the incumbent showed up in the field at an officer-involved shooting. Ask how long it has been since the incumbent tried a case in a courtroom or if he has ever tried a murder case.
When an officer is involved in a shooting, the District Attorney’s Office is responsible for making a determination about the shooting. You would expect this decision would come forth in a timely manner, yet in some cases it has taken a year and a half to two years to get a decision from the incumbent. Ask the incumbent why it takes so long for him to render a decision on such an important matter like taking the life of one of our citizens.
I believe the community, the officer involved in the shooting and the agency he or she works for are entitled to better service than this.
Come join the thousands of first responders, government employees, ranchers and farmers and elect Krishna Abrams for district attorney.
Past president, Solano Deputy Sheriffs’ Association
