A Fremont (Dodge County)lawyer named Pam Hopkins is running for Washington County attorney against incumbent Shurie Graeve. She has a website( www.pamelalynnhopkins.org )where she makes all these claims about being "the only candidate who lives in Washington County" but uses a post office box as an address, has an apparent cell phone number as contact information, and a fax line with a Fremont extension.

Hopkins does not appear to practice law in Washington County, but has an office building in Fremont, criticizing her opponent for living in Omaha and not contributing to Washington County's tax base. Hopkins doesn't even have a photo of herself on her website, or mention that her law practice is in Dodge County.

If you are running for office, don't you want people to know who and where you are? And if not, WHY not?

Here is an example of an irrelevant argument, as it does not address any issues that are important in the eyes of Washington County residents such as myself. Besides, I think Fontenelle, Nebraska is a part of Washington County (Hopkins lives here). Perhaps candidates should focus on the issues, as Hopkins does, rather than the whereabouts of their opponent. I may be the only resident who feels this way, but here's one vote for Hopkins.

I know for a fact that Pam lives in Washington County - in Fontanelle. She owns a home and pays property taxes - unlike her opponent, who rents an apartment in Omaha. Pam maintains a website (unlike her opponent) the content of which is informative as to her background, her personal information, and her position on the issues. Get informed - check it out - and go vote for Pam!

I saw the website. A reputation for honesty and integrity? You gotta be kidding. Her office is in Fremont. I was there. You want delays and excuses you vote for her.

Speaking of being informed, why does the former Washington County attorney write in support of Shurie Graeve pointing out that she owns a home in Washington County?

Maybe C Boydston and George are the ones who should be informed. Hopkins made an issue of her opponent's residence while her own law practice is in Dodge County.

'Graeve right choice for county attorney'

To the editor,

Doing your job as a county attorney and running for political office can be like swimming with alligators. If you are doing your job, you often make some people angry.

I know as a former county attorney that holding law violators accountable for their actions can be a thankless job. However, our county needs a county attorney who will not back down from what is right.

Shurie Graeve is that type of county attorney. Shurie Graeve is a Washington County home owner and taxpayer and has made a positive contribution to our community during the past six years. With nearly a decade of experience as a prosecutor, our county needs her in the courtroom, the classroom and in our community.

Please join me Tuesday in voting for Shurie Graeve for Washington County Attorney.

Pamela Hopkins will move to wherever she can find a job. County attorney job should not be welfare for a lawyer who can't make a living in private practice in Fremont.
Reelect Shurie Graeve.

Shurie Graeve owns a home in Washington County and has done so for years. Check your facts. She is too busy working full-time to maintain a website of her daily whereabouts
