HCLDF Endorses Elan Firpo
Tom Sebourn reports the Humboldt Civil Liberties Defense Fund has endorsed District Attorney candidate Elan Firpo:
"The office of District Attorney plays an unparalleled role in both the protection and violation of our cherished liberties. Few public officials hold such power to take away one's freedom as a prosecutor does. We urge all citizens who share our concern for protection of the freedoms we hold so dear to join us in working to elect Élan Firpo as Humboldt County's District Attorney."
They are correct, and such an endorsement should pull some weight. Unfortunately, at least some voters up here might consider concern for civil liberties a bad thing.
