UPDATE: Long time ASA Howard Pohl has resigned. It was an amicable resignation reportedly for personal and not professional reasons. Howard leaves a long legacy as a superb prosecutor. His skill, wisdom, guidance, humor and experience is a loss the SAO can ill afford. We wish him well.
Good Tuesday Morning! It's election day. Honor the men and women who have fought for your right to vote and tell that judge you will be back in a few hours because you're going to vote.
We went 5-0 on our NFL picks, winning our final MNF IF bet. The totals later.
We want to recognize two REGJB regulars who are on the ballot today:
Lisa Lesperance for the State legislature. She has the endorsement and backing of the State Democratic party. GO LISA!
And Rod Vereen for Congress. He is running as an independent which might just be the right move in 2010. GO ROD!
Stay tuned tonight for your most complete local blog coverage of the national elections.
Coming soon: Halloween is over, but not for Judges Brown and Soto. Their worst nightmare is about to come true. COURT REPORTERS ON STRIKE. Low pay and general disrespect force local court reporters into a one day strike to let judges and lawyers see just how important they are.
