A Dark-Horse candidate has declared and pulled papers to run against El Dorado County DA, Vern Pierson. Judson Henry, a local lawyer, met with a group at a private party last night and gave the first political speech of his life. The gathering of about 50 people included many past supporters of the DA, but one member of the opposing camp tried to crash, but was asked to vacate. The full room of locals pledged to support and wrote checks to launch the campaign. The theme most welcomed was when Judson said, "The DA's job is to prosecute crimes. It is that simple. It is not to play favorites, reward friends, punish enemies, or to play politics in any way."
