District attorney

EDITOR:

Obviously, there are questions regarding the recent filing of Judson Hamor Henry, candidate for District Attorney. There was also an online comment, questioning District Attorney Vern Pierson’s residency, when he first filed as a candidate. Yes, Mr. Pierson worked for the Amador District Attorney’s office and previously with the State Attorney General’s office. However, I believe Mr. Pierson was already living in El Dorado Hills. His children attended Oak Ridge High School.

As far as candidate Henry, this story first appeared on News 10, on Friday, also showing that Mr. Henry was residing on the property of Cris Alarcon, and stating the same information, that appeared in the Mountain Democrat. I believe more will be reported by other news sources, before the June 3 primary.

The guilt or innocence of Supervisor Nutting will be determined in April, when he goes to trial. Mr. Dellinger’s court date is in May. Grand Jury transcripts are available for Mr. Nutting, plus information regarding charges for Dellinger and Cris Alarcon. The Internet is a powerful resource for information.

The election for District Attorney should not be based on the trial of Mr. Nutting. It should be based on the candidate whose legal expertise fits the position for the office of DA, as well as their history of practicing law. Mr. Pierson has had his fair share of convictions of criminal cases, some receiving national attention. His credentials and efforts are impressive. Whereas, Mr. Henry’s history, since passing the bar 11 years ago, has been filing bankruptcies for his clients and reportedly, for himself as well.

Voters still have approximately three months to research all the candidates. Many have a long-standing history of being involved in the community, as well as their families. Attend the candidate forums, search the Internet. This is your responsibility as a voter. As well, remain informed and involved to assure that our elected representatives are making the best decisions to serve you and El Dorado County.
