Well your thinking is wrong!There isn't any name calling in the letter, but it does sound whiny. Incumbents get free press when challengers don't typically, that is how it goes. I wonder if a Sacramento DUI attorney coming here on the behest of the accused polluters will show the commitment to our community that we need, or will get the air time to indicate to us if there is more to him than that. Sometimes the status quo is the lesser of two evils, Mike's career does show his commitment to our community, I would think.
No district attorney in the state of California is on TV as frequently as butte county's. That is because he controls channel 12 and 24 ( he must have something on the station manager). He tried to control channel 7 but they have become wise to his manipulations. Wonder why Shasta, Yuba, Colusa and other north state counties don't have their da's constantly preening for the cameras? Probably because they are to busy working for their clients, the people of the State of California. Without the local media constantly trying to pump up his image district attorney ramsey would have been put out to pasture long ago because he just is not that good a lawyer. A case in point was the last murder case that he tried and lost. That African-American lawyer from Oakland literally wiped the floor with him.
