Prather: Concerned about candidate’s domestic violence arrest

One of the candidates running for county supervisor in District 3, Eddie Crandell Jr., features the word “character” on his campaign signs. However, I have discovered some very disturbing information about his past arrest for “spousal battery” that raises serious questions about Mr. Crandell’s true character.

According to Lake County Sheriff’s Department records, Mr. Crandell was arrested for hitting his then-girlfriend, Felisa Ramos, on the head. Ramos told the arresting officers that Crandell had choked her and then hit her on the back of the head. The arresting deputies found a bump on Ms. Ramos’ head, as well as an abrasion and broken blood vessels on her neck.

I believe the voters of north Lake County are entitled to hear from Mr. Crandell about the circumstances surrounding this terrible incident.

With all the sexual harassment scandals being uncovered in Washington D.C. and Sacramento, the last thing we need is an abusive politician here in Lake County. Mr. Crandell, I am awaiting your response?

Linda Prather lives in Kelseyville, Calif.
