Krishna Abrams for district attorney

As a 37-year resident of Solano County and a former 17-year employee of the District Attorney’s Office, I know from personal experience that Krishna Abrams is clearly the only choice for district attorney.

Do you want a district attorney who is tough on crime? Just observe Ms. Abrams in trial once and you will see that she is a fierce prosecutor. She fights for justice but she does not leave the fight in the courtroom. She consistently demonstrates support and compassion for the victims of crime and their families. She fights for the victims’ rights and makes sure they are heard. These are qualities which the Solano County district attorney has been lacking for far too long.

Vote for justice. Vote for Krishna Abrams.

    Question... if Krishna Abrams is elected DA of Solano County, would she actively investigate and prosecute corrupt people in Solano County government? For example, if whistleblowers from the Sheriff's Office exposed evidence of corruption within the SO, would Ms Abrams sweep that under the rug and preserve the good-old-boy power structure or would she fight corruption within our county government for the benefit of the people and for doing what's right?

    The Mister: very good point! I was wondering the same thing. I think this is just another example of an employee "taking on the boss" the first moment available and taking advantage of the boss' good will for nominating her to prosecutor of the year. I can't respect the fact that she claims to have received the unanimous vote from Solano county law enforcement when several agencies have purposely stayed out of the endorsement race. In a mailer I received, she claims to have the unanimous support of all law enforcement in Solano county when I know that she had not done so. That seems to be an unethical claim and ignores the existence of law enforcement agencies that play these political fights smart. I'm married to one of the most experienced investigators in Solano county and he supports Don DuBain. Experience trumps blind loyalty to the "significant other" of a sheriff's deputy. Inexperienced and young law enforcement officers shouldn't support their colleagues' girlfriend simply for being "their brother's girlfriend." It's my hope and expectation that they would have more sense than that, especially if they are charged with the public's safety.

    District Attorney is a countywide election. Fairfield is the county seat however Vacaville residents are within Solano county and get to vote for DA.

    Abrams said that the DA's office is inept and corrupt, isn't she part of the corruption?

    She is an employee. She is not management.

    Abrams has been a superb prosecutor for years in Solano. She is tough, ethical, and her conviction record speaks for itself. To generalize the failures of the current DA and his administration with Abrams is wrong. Deputy DA's are responsible for their own cases and are each accountable to the state bar.

    Watch her in court. Hard to say she is not corrupt. Judges make good friends.

    Not only that, but I believe Krishna is more judicious in the application of her rightful prosecutorial descretion----essential to cost effective governance and in mitigation of torts against State and Local government. Krishna will not prefer charges in cases that lack evidence or where exculpatory evidence is overwhelming. Krishna is not a race or sex baiter / inflamer or emotional thinker like Donald Inquistion Political Show Trial DuBain is.
