One thing is clear to employees of the D.A.'s Office...
Criticize Joyce Dudley: You will be punished.
Speak your mind: You will be fired.
Think about opposing her administration: You'll loose your job...

govlawwatch: Who ever said that because you are ill with cancer that you should quit your job? You're position would be that she should be forced to quit..... to give up her health benefits, to stop working in the department that she has been with for her entire career.... and to be put out on the street without salary or medical help.
Give me a break. Again.... so other than a defense attorney and former D.A. candidate who was embarassingly trounced.... who is providing any verifiable information that the D.A.'s office is not running as it should.
On DA Says She's Fulltime Despite Illness

I still see absolutely no info by anyone blogging here that somehow the D.A.'s office is not running as it should. The Hollywood case resulted in a conviction.... there are no attorneys quiting the office and claiming that the office is "falling apart", nothing from probation, police, or the courts that the office is "in disaray".
So where is this huge problem? How is Ms. Stanley's illness causing the D.A.'s not to do their job?
I see nothing more than a lot of vultures circling.... An elected official is ill, but her office keeps working... I think that is pretty commendable.

The elected D.A. has cancer, and people are in an uproar to have her step down. And the "best" that the Independent could find to give an "impartial" assessment is Doug Hayes !! Oh Geez.... I was laughing seeing his comments.... an over the hill... long time detractor of the D.A.'s Office who if elected would have run the office into the ground !!
It is nothing but gossip that the office is not being run while Chistie Stanley is battling her cancer.
You don't just force someone into retirement when they are ill with cancer, unless there is a reason..... the article is nothing more than courthouse gossip with no evidence of any problems. (You know what "evidence" is... right Doug?)

Althought it seems that MacKinnon and Beebe, and Pappas and Farr, have spent alot of money..... they had to run a primary election campaign back in June.... vs. the city council candidates who only had to run in the general election and just in their own cities....

A young brash attorney that believes in treatment for drug users, who will probably shake up the courthouse against a 60 year old researcher who wants to maintain the status quo with the other judges? Geez.... seems like an easy decision.... I'm voting for MacKinnon.

MacKinnon has worked dilligently in the D.A.'s office for years. He came into the Drug-Mental Health Court as it was about to implode in Santa Maria and helped to more than double the numbers of people in treatment. He is known as a moderate in the D.A.'s office. Those who criticize him confuse his hard work and dedication... and call it arrogance.

Who's said the D.A. is asking for jail time? The purpose of a preliminary hearing is just to see if the case is justified to go forward. I am willing to hold off on any criticism until the case is done. Letting him walk away without any supervision might not be the smartest thing that the system could do. I am willing to see what happens before lambasting the D.A. office.
