Lincoln City Homepage Letters to the editor

Lanee is a natural leader.  From the day she joined our office she has demonstrated strong leadership skills and has earned the trust and respect of her fellow prosecutors, staff and law enforcement.  That is why the majority of Deputy District Attorneys in the office have chosen to endorse Lanee.

We have seen her in action.  She is wicked smart and learns new information in a heartbeat.  She has a work ethic to match.  Lanee is a problem solver.  We have terrible inefficiency problems in our office.  Lanee has fresh ideas that will greatly improve that and make sure we are better stewards of your tax dollars.  Law enforcement regularly asks to have their most difficult cases assigned to Lanee, because they trust her.

Neither candidate has experience as a District Attorney, but Lanee has more than enough experience to lead our office (Mr. Cable took office in February).  It is hard to speak out against your current boss, but the majority of Deputy DAs have endorsed Lanee because she is by far the best person for this job.  We know Lanee better than anyone, and we have complete confidence in her ability to be a GREAT District Attorney.

  1. I forgot to list Chrystal Dickenson who has endorsed me as well. Your math is wrong. We have not yet replaced Christine Herman who has taken a position in Marion County. There are currently 10 attorneys in the office, including both candidates. I have the support of many of our other 30 employees as well. Please correct your misleading headline.

  2. Mr. Cable is mistaken. What Kylie’s letter said, as well as the headline, was that Lanee has the majority of DDA support in the office. That is true.

    The current Deputy District Attorneys in our office include:

    Michael Thornicroft
    Kenneth Park
    Chrystal Dickinson
    Lynn Howard
    Hollie Boggess
    Amber Kolsrud
    Kylie Andrisa
    Lanee Danforth

    Mr. Cable is endorsed by Michael Thornicroft, Kenneth Park and Chrystal Dickinson. That is 3 DDAs.

    I am endorsed by Lynn Howard, Kylie Andrisa, Hollie Boggess and Amber Kolsrud. That is 4 DDAs.

    4 is the majority. While Mr. Gardner is an attorney in our office, he is not a DDA. He is a Chief Deputy appointed by Mr. Cable. Kylie’s letter was clear that the majority of DDAs support Lanee. It’s important to note that DDAs answer to Mr. Gardner and Mr. Cable.

  3. Facts matter. We need a DA that will not distort the facts so suite their own agenda. Five of the eight deputy district attorneys in the office support Lanee. Brian Gardner is our boss. Mr. Cable brought him in as his “running-mate” so to speak. But even if you count Mr. Gardner, that would still be five out of nine in support of Lanee. That is a majority.

    Trying to count an ex employee is a clear distortion of the facts. Should we count JW Hupp also? He was the Chief Deputy (same role as Brian) that left just prior to Mr. Cable’s appointment. He has endorsed Lanee. Do you think Lanee shouldn’t count but Brian should? Why? Because that makes the number look bad?

    And just for the record, I checked the endorsement page just before I sent my letter, and Chrystal was not on it, so I did not know that she had endorsed Mr. Cable. So according to both candidates endorsement page at the time I sent my letter, Lanee had four (not including Lanee) and Cable had two. To be very clear, Mr. Gardner is Lanee’s boss, he is not a “deputy district attorney”, he is the Chief Deputy District Attorney, a management position that reports only to Mr. Cable.

  4. You have all made plea deals with violent repeat felons that turn my stomach. I’m just looking at the lesser of two evils, at this point.
