Keeping Riese for two important trials in best interest of justice

I’m Bob Drossel. I continue to read letters to the editor and hear rumors about me hiring Mike Riese when I am elected district attorney. Let me set the record straight.

When asked at the Tea Party forum if I would hire Mr. Riese I responded that if Mr. Riese was working on the Josiah Miller trial, for the death of Michelle Dickson, and the trial for the defendants in the Josh Lacy case, I would hire him as a special prosecutor to finish those two cases and then his work with the DA’s Office would cease.

My experience shows that this is in the best interest of justice. I have spoken at length to the families of both of the victims and they requested that Mr. Riese finish the cases. These families deserve to know there will be no delay in bringing an end to the long fight to convict the people charged in the deaths of Michelle and Josh.

My vote goes to candidate who invests wealth in constituency

Is there anyone out there that thinks, as I do, that the amount of money being spent to “win” political offices in November in this country is obscene?

My vote goes to the candidate that gives those billions of dollars being spent to the state, county or town where he or she is running.

Local Chamber of Commerce should break ties with nat’l org.

Recently TV stations all over California have been flooding the airwaves with negative, deceptive attack ads smearing Barbara Boxer and Jerry Brown produced and sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce currently receives huge contributions from foreign corporations including Saudi Arabia, China and India.

The local Chamber of Commerce is affiliated with the U.S. Chamber. While I feel that the local chamber is important to local business health and I support my local businesses, I would hate to think that by doing so, I was supporting these deceptive ads and large multinational Corporations.

McCollum knows how the college works, advocates for students

Greetings from Wyoming! Christine and I have been away from Crescent City for a few years but we left our hearts at Point St. George. We plan to return to be reunited with them one day soon.

Part of my affection for the county circulates around the Del Norte campus of College of the Redwoods. This is a precious institution that has improved the lives of innumerable men and women from the county.

Stephen McCollum has been a crucial and positive part of CRDN for over 30 years and he has earned your support to be the Del Norte trustee for College of the Redwoods. Stephen knows how the college works. He is respected by professors, staff and administrators. They listen to him. He influences their opinions.

Having researched candidates, I will be voting for Drossel for DA

A letter to the editor by Austin Larson published Sept. 25 (“Shame on Drossel supporter for letter that took the low road”), stated that Jon Alexander was prosecuting cases and “putting bad people in prison” while Bob Drossel was doing nothing. The truth is the exact opposite. The last case Mr. Alexander prosecuted for the DA’s Office was in 2005. Since then his practice has consisted mostly of being a defense attorney where he attempts to keep accused people out of prison.

Instead it was Bob Drossel who was putting bad people in prison. In 2008 and 2009 Mr. Drossel was asked to return to the DA’s Office as a special prosecutor. Mr. Drossel received an award from the Law Enforcement Administrators of Del Norte County (LEADN) for this work.

In 2006 Jon Alexander ran for the DA position but fortunately did not win because shortly after this election, his license was suspended for the fourth time. Currently there is a state bar case (03-O-1010) pending against Mr. Alexander and part of the judgement in this case will require that he take and pass a Multi-State Professional Responsibility Examination. The judgment states that failure to take and pass this exam “may result in an automatic suspension” of his license.
