Letters to the Editor

Appalling ‘donations’

I am appalled by Dan Dow taking “donations” from a criminal defense attorney who was representing an accused rapist who Dow was prosecuting.

The apparent lack of integrity and judgment is incredible. How anyone could support a candidate who would engage in this behavior, much less as a candidate for the office of district attorney, I cannot understand. The letter from 21 of the deputy district attorneys makes me question their judgment, as well.

I hope that the citizens of San Luis Obispo County avoid partisanship and choose the best-qualified man for the job.

As the mother of a former naval officer, and one who has the utmost respect for all who have served or currently serve, I believe loyalty, integrity, honesty and hard work reflect a man’s character. I hope that you will join me in supporting Tim Covello as our next district attorney.
