Update: Feb. 17, 2014 - So far four candidates, Allan Dollison, Elan Firpo, Maggie Fleming and Arnie Klein, have entered the 2014 race for Humboldt County District Attorney after last November's announcement, by sitting D.A., Paul Gallegos, indicating that he wouldn't run for another term. Gallegos was first elected to the office in 2002. During the last election cycle, he faced three challengers: Allison Jackson, Paul Hagen and Kathleen Bryson.

KMUD News Correspondent, Daniel Mintz, aired reports on the campaigns as they kicked off, and those audios, candidates photos and website links appear below, as does the original post made after Arnie Klein, the first candidate to enter the race, made his announcement.

The 2014 race for Humboldt County District Attorney received some added interest last Wed, Nov 13 when Arnie Klein came out of retirement to announce his challenge to incumbent D.A. Paul Gallegos. Klein served as Humboldt County Deputy District Attorney from 2006 until he retired from that position in 2012. According to his election web page Klein, "...has served as deputy district attorney in four California counties and has built a legacy of championing social justice, whether for the indigent or the high profile. His convictions have gone beyond the confines of the courtroom and into the community where he has created educational programs that changed the way sexual assault victims are treated throughout the country."

Klein's experience, before joining the Humboldt County D.A.'s Office, ranges from working as a Deputy District Attorney in Los Angeles, as well as in Tulare County, to serving as senior trial lawyer in the Monterey County District Attorney’s office.

Daniel Mintz attended Klein's candidacy announcement event and submitted the news piece below, which aired on the KMUD Local News Wed., Nov. 13, 2013.
