Gladis: Questions about Aguiar-Curry’s endorsement of Yolo County district attorney

One wonders what the Democratic Assembly member, Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, intends by endorsing the present non-Democratic Yolo County district attorney since he doesn’t follow democratic values.

This district attorney remains neutral on Prop 39 (three strikes reform) but opposes Prop 47 (sentencing reform), Prop 57 (reduce mass incarceration), and Prop 64 (legal adult marijuana use). These four propositions Yolo County voters overwhelmingly approved. Cecilia Aguiar-Curry appears to oppose Yolo County voters.

Consider, then, this same district attorney has filed more felony trials in Yolo County (population 213,000) than has the district attorney in Alameda County (population 1,683,000) Felony trials are expensive ordeals. Yolo County has a 41 percent felony non-conviction rate compared to California’s average 19-percent felony non-conviction rate. Cecilia seems to support this effort.

Yolo County’s current district attorney requires the accused to plead guilty to a felony before getting into a program, e.g., mental illness court or restorative justice. Cecilia apparently approves of this strategy.

People have spoken to me about an innocent friend or relative in prison due to fabricated charges by the current district attorney system. Cecilia seemingly believes in this approach to injustice.

An exceptionally well-qualified Democratic-valued candidate is Dean Johansson who would use diversionary programs for those eligible, while going hard on career criminals. See how Dean Johanssons’s values line up with Yolo County voters at www.Dean4.DA.com .

Still one is wondering if Cecilia Aguiar-Curry is the representative that Democrat voters want in the California Assembly.
