The role of district attorney demands attention, focus, innovation and leadership.

District Attorney Don du Bain has demonstrated these traits, keeping our community safe and prosecuting crimes against women, children, seniors and families; that’s why in this election, I’m supporting the re-election of Don du Bain for district attorney.

I have worked with Don for the past several years and have always admired his passion and hard work in everything he does.

One of Don’s greatest achievements as our district attorney is his central role in opening the Solano Family Justice Center, a safe haven for victims of violence to seek refuge and get access to needed services. Through Don du Bain’s leadership, hundreds of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and elder abuse have received desperately needed services at the Family Justice Center over the past year.

Don was also behind the creation of our new Truancy Court that is keeping more of our youth in school.

Don du Bain is the most qualified individual to serve as Solano County’s chief prosecutor. His broad base of support includes Crime Victims United of California, the Solano County Association of Deputy District Attorneys, Sheriff Tom Ferrara, former Sheriff Gary Stanton, Rep. Mike Thompson, four of five Solano County supervisors and every mayor in Solano County.

On June 3, I ask you to cast your ballot and re-elect District Attorney Don du Bain. Thank you.

Jim Frazier

11th District Assemblyman

    I am still looking for the date, but I did say on this electronic forum that this election for DA would be lots of fun. This posting (and the others of this series of four) is the kind of thing I was alluding to. Four real quick spewings--do they all come from the same IP address? And Dear Jim--there is a big difference between "prosecuting crimes" and the supervision of a group of attorneys who prosecute crimes. Care to amend your statement?

    Oh man...Looks like I'm leaving my ballot for State Assembly BLANK. I question anyone who endorses Don DuBain!

    Wow, let's vote by taking the opinion of ANOTHER out of town representative telling us who is is good and who is bad? This guy is from CCC a whole different set of needs, not our needs. We don't need him sticking his nose in our election

    Assemblyman Frazier's seat represents a large percentage of Solano County. What happens in Solano County is very much his business. And, if you're so concerned about out-of-towners sticking their noses in elections, you should be concerned about Abrams last minute residency change to Solano County from Yolo County so that she would qualify for the ballot. Meanwhile, her child is still going to school there. Your comment seems full of hypocrisy. Good luck with talking out of both sides of your mouth. Smart people don't fall for dishonest tricks.

    I join with Assemblyman Frazier in my unqualified support of D.A. Don DuBain. He is the only candidate in this race who is not in it for himself. Abrams is offering herself as an alternative, nothing more. I predict that after her resounding defeat on June 3rd, she will retreat to the Socialist People's Republic of Davis - from whence she came.

    DA Don du Bain and Assemblymember Jim Frazier both have strong records of supporting our Solano County community's best interests. They are both engaged in local efforts to protect children, DV victims, and other vulnerable populations. Along with them I fully support re electing Jim Spering and John Vasquez as County Supervisors, and Bill Dodd! As a community member and children's advocate it's important to me that our electeds listen to the people to really hear about our needs and support positive change. These candidates are the real deal in my opinion! Debbi Davis
