Mendocino D.A. Race Goes To Court
Looks like recently appointed District Attorney for Mendocino County, Keith Faulder, has filed papers with the State Supreme Court challenging the upcoming election for District Attorney. Somewhat odd in that Faulder is expected by most to be the one that would be appointed to Vroman's position if Vroman wins.
As it stands now, if the late Norm Vroman wins the election, the Board of Supervisors will appoint someone to take Vroman's place. Faulder interprets the law as requiring the election for D.A. be invalidated since one of the candidates died and a special election be held for that position later on.
The county elections folks see it differently. I guess we'll just have to see what the State Supreme Court says.
