In all the years I’ve read the Letters to the Editor, I have never written one until now. I am disgusted with the recent events about which I’ve read in the newspapers about Gary Hickey, who is running for our county District Attorney. I realize folks have difficulties, but who we elect as our next District Attorney is critically important.

Tori Verber Salazar has dedicated her career to prosecuting criminals. In contrast, in the last six months Hickey has had three run-ins with law enforcement. Clearly this is not someone who is qualified to lead the District Attorney’s office.

We have an opportunity to make a difference with our votes. Don’t let apathy or ignorance prevent you from taking action.

Please take the time to read about and meet Tori Verber Salazar. We need her leadership, experience and integrity in the D.A.’s office. I know you’ll agree she should be our next D.A. — but you need to vote.
