Yes for Nick | Letter

The undersigned attorneys in San Juan County support Nick Power for the position of San Juan County Prosecutor. He will bring a needed change of attitude, sensibility and accountability to our county.

In recent years there has been significant mismanagement in certain cases, a lack of candor in dealing with the public, and questionable support for the principles and ideals of our community. This leads us to conclude that the incumbent, Randall Gaylord, who has now been in the office for almost a quarter century, needs to be replaced.

Nick Power is highly qualified for the position; he has had a broad practice over the last 21 years in both state and federal courts and has been a successful advocate for clients in both civil and criminal matters. He is dedicated to fairness and transparency. We are confident he will represent the best interests of the county departments by providing them with necessary legal advice to keep out of lawsuits, as well as protecting our citizens.

He has the courage to take on the county on behalf of clients whose rights have been violated by the county, and he now has the courage to step up and give the voters an opportunity for positive change. We applaud him for running for this office.

We encourage voters to elect Nick Power for our next prosecutor.
