As the surprises and the less-than-surprises of Election Night 2010 continue to sink in, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many Eyster4DA supporters who live in and are spread across Mendocino County. Running for public office has never been an easy thing, especially in a county the size of Mendocino, but your enthusiasm and support made it a lot easier for me.

It takes a lot of forward-thinking, community-minded voters coming together with a common goal to make for the successful campaign that I experienced. From Gualala to Covelo, Leggett to Hopland, and Ukiah to Fort Bragg/Mendocino, I am grateful for the advice, help, and enthusiasm that fueled my campaign everywhere I traveled. In addition to the many individuals who publicly and financially supported Eyster4DA and my positive message for change, I want to also thank the groups who stepped up to the plate and publicly announced to the electorate of Mendocino County their support for Eyster4DA.

To the members of the Mendocino County Farm Bureau, the North Coast Builders Exchange, the Fort Bragg Police Officers Association, SEIU Local 1021, the Mendocino County Deputy Sheriffs Association, and the Ukiah Police Officers Association, thank you! I also want to thank the local media outlets for covering the District Attorney race in a professional manner. Thank you to the Ukiah Daily Journal and the Anderson Valley Advertiser for investigating my background and experience and, in turn, endorsing my candidacy. Finally, to Barbara Newell and her folks; Chris Neary and the ever-capable Jennifer; Hal and Rosie Waganet; and others who worked closely with me, thank you for your hard work, thank you for positively promoting the Eyster message, and thank you for being good friends.

I respect the right of all people to have fair and respectful treatment...
I trust what you see here leads you to the conclusion that I am the most qualified candidate to be Mendocino County's next District Attorney. There are a lot of materials included on the various pages of this site so please take your time to read through things. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. As District Attorney, I intend to have an "open door" policy as I value the right of media outlets, the public, the law enforcement agencies, and others to have sufficient information whenever possible to be able to understand why certain policies are in place and why my staff and I have made certain decisions.


Lead trial attorney and senior supervisor. Personally handled prosecution of serious and violent criminals while training and overseeing the work of junior prosecutors.



As a prosecutor, I appreciate David for his wit and sense of humor which are equaled by his courtroom tenacity and dedication to duty.



He is a model to young attorneys and takes that responsibility seriously. He always has time to listen, and provides well reasoned solutions to problems they pose.
