Allan Dollison would really like to tell you what he's about.
The Army veteran and former prosecutor is formally kicking off his District Attorney campaign on Saturday, January 18th at the Eureka Veterans Hall.
According to a press release:
Eureka, CA---Eureka Resident and former 6 ½ year Senior Prosecutor in the Humboldt County District Attorney’s office, Allan L. Dollison, will announce his campaign for the 2014 District Attorney’s Race on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 12:00 pm at the Eureka Veteran’s Memorial Hall 1020 “H” Street; Eureka, CA.
The public is encouraged to come to this important event. They will get a chance to meet Allan and his family, hear Allan talk about his vision of how to improve the DA’s office, address serious issues of reform within our criminal justice system, and learn more about his impressive biography.
Allan is extremely honored to be introduced by a longtime 40+ year important resident of Humboldt County, John Grobey. Mr. Grobey is a former Navy Seal, and Chairman of the HSU Economics Department as well as the current President of the Humboldt/Del Norte Chapter of Military Officers Association of America. Allan and Mr. Grobey also serve together on the Mad River Honor Guard, performing military memorials for Veterans who have passed. Mr. Dollison stated, ‘I will have many friends and supporters there, and I am genuinely interested in hearing a diverse set of opinions from a wide cross section of the community. I also want them to hear my ideas so we can get a conversation in this community going about what is wrong and how to fix it.”
He also said, “There is both empirical evidence as well as sad and tragic events over the last several years that indicate that criminal activity is getting out of control. I believe that the District Attorney’s office can and should play the vital role in addressing these issues. I plan to lay that out in my speech.”
Finally Mr. Dollison, added, “I will highlight my Quarter-Century (one half of my life) career serving in the United States Army. I believe there are very few higher callings in life then serving your country and your community. That is what I am about, and believe that is an important credential in holding this important office.”
The event is free and light refreshments will be available.
