Pletcher is a champion of ‘what could be’

By LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | October 30, 2018 Over the past week, the IJ published two letters criticizing Anna Pletcher’s “shocking” plan to provide victims of sexual assault with rape kit examinations in Marin County.

IJ editorial makes case for Anna Pletcher

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | October 16, 2018 Marin voters should read the whole Marin IJ editorial (Oct. 7) about who it’s endorsing for Marin County district attorney (Lori Frugoli) — and then make up their own minds about who’s the better candidate. Anna Pletcher, it says, has an “impressive” resume. She’s prosecuted “bank robbers, gang members,…

Pletcher would bring a ‘fresh perspective’

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | October 16, 2018 — In a recent article about experience in the Marin D.A.’s race, candidate Lori Frugoli acknowledged the obvious, that the office needs change.

Pletcher is a ‘real world’ highly qualified prosecutor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | October 3, 2018 — Thank you for recognizing that Dick Spotswood’s Sept. 22 column regarding the Marin district attorney’s race contained multiple errors. Although you appropriately acknowledged and corrected some of his errors, the column still contains Mr. Spotwood’s assertion that D.A. candidate Anna Pletcher’s experience was limited to “civil anti-trust…

Spotswood column erred about Pletcher

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | September 27, 2018 — Dick Spotswood wrote in his Sept. 23 column that the two-way runoff for Marin district attorney is the most important Marin County race on the ballot.

Pletcher offers ‘fresh ideas on pressing issues’

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | September 18, 2018 —  Anna Pletcher earns voter support the honest way. She offers fresh ideas on pressing issues, and she lets her accomplishments speak for themselves. Unlike her opponent Lori Frugoli, she doesn’t pay $20,000-plus to appear in slate mailers, like the California Senior Voters Guide. I can speak firsthand to Anna’s…

Voters have clear choice in Marin DA contest

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | September 4, 2018 —  Marin County Superior Court Roy Judge Chernus properly ruled that Anna Pletcher, the district attorney candidate endorsed by the Marin County Democratic Party, can tell voters about that Democratic Party endorsement (IJ, Aug. 30). What’s surprising is that the campaign of her opponent, Lori Frugoli, tried to keep…
