Jackson to enter DA fray
Jackson was a bitter rival of Gallegos when she supported Worth Dikeman’s fruitless campaign in 2006, even accusing Gallegos of covering up forged evidence.
Gallegos fired Jackson in 2004.
Followers of the county General Plan Update may remember that Jackson supports cracking down on unpermitted building. As she told the Planning Commission in 2007:
I absolutely applaud Commissioners Gearhardt and Smith’s comments with respect to increasing the penalties for people building unpermitted because that is a problem that is not just on [Timber Production Zones] it’s on every single parcel in this county and really needs to be addressed.
The other candidate in the race so far, Kathleen Bryson, reportedly asked Jackson not to run.
