To the Editor:
The Humboldt Civil Liberties Defense Fund (HCLDF) enthusiastically endorses Élan Firpo for district attorney. The HCLDF is committed to the protection of civil liberties and feels that Ms. Firpo is the candidate that would best protect those liberties guaranteed in our Constitution.
The HCLDF is made up both conservatives and liberals. While we may differ on matters of legislation, we are united in our unwavering defense of civil liberties because we believe them to be the cornerstone of our democracy.
The district attorney possesses an unparalleled ability to either protect or violate our cherished liberties. Few hold such power to take away one’s freedom as a prosecutor. We urge all who share our concern for protection of our freedoms to join us in working to elect Élan Firpo district attorney.
