Support Abrams for district attorney

In a letter to the editor published May 16, 2014, Minnie Noble advised us to “Vote to amend the good old boys’ society.” I want to second that. Unless and until we, the voters, demand integrity in our elected officials, corruption will continue to escalate and our society, in general, degenerate.

We need to turn the tide of rampant corruption (as in the state Legislature) and dereliction of duty (as in Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administrations). This will take enormous effort by the American people. Let’s start locally, by electing Krishna Abrams as our district attorney.

John F. Kennedy once said, “There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long-range risks of comfortable inaction.”

For far too long, we have been comfortably inactive. We are comfortable with high unemployment rates while our stores are full of items made in China. We are comfortable with citizens waiting years for Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration to grant assistance to the elderly and disabled. We are comfortable with our children renting hotel rooms for prom and people dressing as if they are on a camping trip, no matter what the occasion.

Here, in Solano County, we have a chance to elect a district attorney who is out to do more than just join the “good ol’ boys’ network” and rake in a large salary for doing very little. We have a chance to begin, on a grass-roots level, a push back against the shambles we have allowed our society to become.

Let’s elect Krishna Abrams as our district attorney.

    Yes, if Abrams is elected, I'll wear a suit everyday. Even camping.

    Someone good at doing a job does not necessarily translate into someone who can manage others. Ms. Abrams strikes me as a lone wolf, not a team player, and someone who is out for her own ambitions. First, she thinks about running for a judgeship in another county, then she moves to Solano County the day she decides to run for DA. And she fails to have the courtesy to tell her boss she is running against him. Integrity? Honor? Judgement? Really?

    Integrity, honor, and judgement? We're still talking about politics, aren't we?

    Right, no name Alf----and DuBain's crimes of suborning perjury, coaching witness testimony, altering previously concluded scientific forensic findings? Why is there no issue there? So you support a criminal in office? Why?

    I do not believe Krishna would go along with this outrage in California! ----> From the video: Tommy Yancy, 32, father of two, was savagely beaten to death by five law enforcement officers during a routine traffic stop near the city of Imperial last Sunday, on Mother’s Day. Yancy, a veteran who suffered from PTSD, served in Afghanistan and Iraq in the 259th Field Service Unit following the 9/11 attacks. Yancy was stopped on his way to the store after a highway patrol officer spotted a missing front license plate on his vehicle. He was subsequently pulled from his car and attacked by a police K-9 unit, hit by a taser, and attacked by five officers until he succumbed to the beating and died. A witnessed, who filmed the incident, can be heard screaming on the recording: “How long before you guys call an ambulance? Call an ambulance!” According to the source of the video, who asked not to be named, his family has not been permitted to see his body, nor have they been given a cause of death.

    duBain didn't move to Solano until he ran for DA and his primary residence is still in SF. Maybe Abrams chose to run against her boss because he isn't running the show, others are. Nobody has mentioned his business he owns. When does he run that? Most likely from the DA's office. And as for being a loner, why wouldn't she be> She's far superior to the others in her office. Their only endorsing Don out of fear, not respect!!
