Re: “'Things Can Fall Apart'

As a former deputy public defender under Kevin Robinson, I second Heidi Holmquist's statements regarding the ethic of zealous representation and inner office support that allowed my colleagues and I to effectively advocate on behalf of the indigent of Humboldt County. Even though the attorneys and wonderful support staff were completely overworked and drowning in cases, we supported each other and went to work everyday knowing that we were a valued member of a team. It is a sad day when my former colleagues have decided to leave the office because they feel they are unable to do their job because of the choices of the Board of Supervisors. It is time to put egos aside and do what is right and constitutionally mandated: hire someone who is qualified and dedicated to indigent representation to lead the office forward. It really doesn't matter if the current PD is legally "qualified" pursuant to local and State rules- what matters is that he is failing miserably as a leader and the most vulnerable populations of the County are the ones most likely to suffer because of this failure.
