From the Jackson campaign:

Humboldt Builders Exchange Endorses Allison Jackson for DA

The Board of Directors of the Humboldt Builders Exchange has unanimously endorsed Allison Jackson for Humboldt County District Attorney.

“The board believes that Allison’s proven record as a prosecutor, along with her work as an award-winning child protective advocate uniquely qualifies Allison to bring about the needed changes to the DA’s Office,” said Humboldt Builders Executive Director Charlene McCombs.

“We’re confident that Allison can take on and be a strong administrator to manage the DA’s Office.”

The Humboldt Builders Exchange represents more than 300 local businesses and more than 4,000 employees.

The Humboldt Builders Exchange endorsement is the latest of several key endorsements, which include the Humboldt Deputy Sheriffs’ Organization, the Humboldt County Correctional Peace Officers Association AFSCME Local 1684 and the Fortuna Police Officer’s Association. Jackson, a partner at the Eureka-based Harland Law Firm, has worked since 2004 representing clients in civil litigation, land-use, employment and other areas of law. Jackson has worked in the Humboldt, Santa Cruz and Santa Clara county district attorney offices.
