One of the problems appears to be defining what constitutes ‘general counsel’ as opposed to ‘special counsel’. An example given would be that special counsel are always hired to deal with bond issues and the like. This could use some clarification.
Although Adley has served in the Senate since first being elected in 2003, apparently he has just recently had constituents approach him who are concerned at the way that the law is being carried out, and particularly that their only recourse seems to be to complain to the DA.
The question that comes to mind, of course, is whether Adley has suddenly become aware of this situation, or whether he has become aware of it only since Patrick Jackson’s father, Richey Jackson, has announced his intention to run against Adley for the 36th District seat?
