Humboldt County Board of Supervisors reaffirm their commitment to newly hired Public Defender

When the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors appointed David Marcus as the county’s Public Defender on Feb. 9, the Board requested a date where they could meet with Mr. Marcus and set expectations and goals for the position. That date was today and the Board met with Mr. Marcus in closed session. During this meeting, Mr. Marcus reaffirmed his commitment to carrying out the mission of the Public Defender’s Office, which is to provide aggressive, competent, and ethical representation to indigent persons facing deprivation of liberty or other civil rights in a cost-effective manner.
This was a valuable meeting for the Board to have, and it reaffirmed our commitment to Mr. Marcus as the county’s Public Defender.

  1. I would say their actions left me speechless but I chose to reply on another post. I'm sure there must be some little-known reason for their decision (which we may never know) but I can't accept what they've said as being anything but a smoke screen.
