District Attorney Paul Gallegos and Deputy District Attorney Allison Jackson went at it in a debate tonight at the Eureka Inn. The theme was domestic violence. I had to work late and caught the whole thing on
KHUM. They had a live broadcast of the two hour debate. They have the equipment to do such broadcasts and no one else in the market has tried to compete with them on that issue.
It was a good debate and both sides scored some points. Allison Jackson knows her stuff but Paul Gallegos did one of the best jobs he has ever done in describing the way things really work in the DA's office.
I almost expected Jackson to kick his ass but that didn't happen. Gallegos held his own and was even at times, articulate. I thought the debate was his to loose but I don't thing he lost it. We'll find out at the polls in November.
