Justice for Truden

Dear Editor:Three former deputies say Colleen Truden is lying. Their allegations must be investigated immediately.If they are found to be true, Truden should be removed from her job. The citizens of the 9th Judicial District should not have to wait to recall her.It’s bad enough that Truden has lost five of six experienced prosecutors because of her management style. But if she has lied in testimony to the Pitkin County commissioners, then she has tainted her office and every case it prosecutes – every conviction will be subject to appeal on the grounds that the DA is a liar. That is a recipe for a breakdown of law and order, and it is intolerable.Dave ReedCarbondale
