Randy Gaylord for prosecutor | Letters

As general counsel for the largest public employee labor union in Orange County, California, I represent working people at scores of municipal offices, including those of the district attorney and public defender. I know from my own experience how fortunate San Juan County residents are to have a prosecuting attorney with the integrity and experience of Randy Gaylord, and I strongly support his re-election.

The qualities of an effective prosecutor — like a commitment to justice, a sophisticated understanding of people and their motivations, and an ability to determine and prioritize the needs of the public — are qualities Randy has consistently demonstrated since he was first elected prosecutor in 1994. He understands the importance of the work performed by public sector workers and is a strong advocate for their economic security. And every day Randy models the conviction and strength of character necessary to successfully further the cause of justice with fairness, compassion and empathy.

Randy Gaylord has been a great Prosecuting Attorney. Whether expanding crime victim services, protecting our islands or mentoring young prosecutors, Randy has served us with commitment and distinction. He has earned and deserves your vote for reelection as prosecuting attorney in November.
