Carter: Farrington's inflated qualifications

We all know by now that Anthony Farrington mistakenly believes that he is qualified to be our elected district attorney. This, despite his own admission that he has never done one single jury trial.

After finally hearing Farrington admit to having no jury trial experience at the candidate's forum in Middletown, I thought someone should investigate the accuracy of his claim that he is qualified to be DA by virtue of his position as a hearing officer in Mendocino County.

An official for Mendocino County has looked into this and has advised that Farrington has conducted precisely ONE hearing as a hearing officer. Take a look at your ballot. Farrington lists himself as attorney/hearing officer. It strikes me as exaggeration at best and deception at worst.

I have been an attorney in Lake County for nearly 30 years. I have never seen a fellow attorney exaggerate such minimal credentials to such a tremendous extent. I am embarrassed for my profession that a fellow attorney would behave in such a manner.

Farrington recently put a quote in a letter to the voters of Lake County. He said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing.” This quote is routinely and falsely attributed to Edmund Burke, but a little research will show that he never said it.

A better and more applicable quote is this one by Plato: "The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."

Thankfully, the good men and women of Lake County, with long and proven records of service and actual dedication and devotion to the protection of public safety, have come out in droves to endorse and support Susan Krones.

The Deputy Sheriff's Association, long-serving and devoted prosecutors like Rich Hinchcliff and Rachel Abelson, Judge Robert Crone, Judge Arthur Mann, our Congressman Mike Thompson, our Sen. Mike McGuire and many others have joined together to support the humble, honest and hard-working candidate who has spent decades working on behalf of the public.

Join them and vote for Susan Krones for DA.

Angela Carter is an attorney. She lives in Kelseyville, California.
