San Mateo County's District Attorney has generally run against no opponent, for many, many years.
San Mateo County needs a fresh perspective for its District Attorney Office. The deadline for filing for candidacy for the Office of District Attorney, to run against the current DA Steve Wagstaffe is drawing near.
San Mateo County needs a DA who will not be lax in prosecuting sexual crimes against children, as the current DA's record proves. We need a DA who will prosecute child molesters to the fullest extent of the law, rather than allowing sex offenders to avoid registration, and serve overly short jail sentences.
We need someone to run who has compassion for the LAW ABIDING citizens of the County of San Mateo, and who won't bow to the wishes of the powerful and wealthy criminals in our midst.
We need to have a candidate who will truly "seek justice and accountability for all who violate the law in our county." and "also seek to provide assistance for those victimized by criminals."
We need a person of compassion, action, and understanding.
william hamilton ayres was arrested on April 5, 2007 on charges relating to his molestation of many young boys while he was alleging to provide psychiatric care to private patients as well as referrals for evaluation from the juvenile court system in San Mateo County. After years of playing demented for the courts, ayres plead "No Contest" and was found guilty of all charges against him on May 16, 2013. ayres was sentenced to 8 years in prison on August 26, 2013. During sentencing, ayres' family (wife Solveig Ayres, son Robert Ayres of Illinois, and daughter Barbara Ayres of Sacramento) spoke in support of the child molester and had pernicious and nasty things to say about ayres' victims and accusers.
ayres has had significant interaction over the years with local politicians on boards like the "Children and Families First Commission," including the DA who was serving when prosecution began Jim Fox and Assemblyman Rich Gordon. In fact, Gordon nominated ayres for a lifetime achievement award for his "Tireless effort to improve the lives of children." ayres has also been vocally supported during his criminal trial by local head-shrinkers like Bart Blinder, Etta Bryant, Mel Blaustein, Harry Coren, Tom Ciesla, Robert Kimmich, Larry Lurie, Maria Lymberis, Richard Shadoan, Captane Thomson, and Harold Wallach.
