Times- Standard Endorses Gallegos
In yet another offbeat argument in one of the current local political issues of the day, the Times- Standard steps up to the plate and endorses Paul Gallegos for District Attorney.
Sorry, Gallegos fans, poor reasoning and thus poor endorsement the way I read it.
They basically say Dikeman would make a fine D.A. but instead endorse Gallegos because he's cool (my words). Hey, he surfs, and the young folks like him. Need anything else be said?
It would seem to me the main issue here is how the D.A.'s is being run but the T-S doesn't seem much concerned with that.
They suggest Gallegos' first term had too many distractions for him to be effective and that he should get four more years to show his stuff.
Ok. It seems to me, though, when you have a D.A. that seems to be universally disliked amongst anyone involved in the criminal justice system up here, we have a problem. Let's hope four more years, assuming he wins, puts the D.A.'s office back in order. I won't be holding my breath.
