Stanislaus County DA Speaks at Constitution Night

Constitution Night 2015Modesto Masons observed our annual Constitution Night on Thursday, September 17, at the Masonic Center of Modesto. Birgit Fladagar, Stanislaus County District Attorney, spoke to the brethren and guests about the various aspects of the county’s prosecutorial office.

Ms. Fladagar began with a personal history of how she came into law practice and criminal justice. She then explained how Governor’s Brown’s Realignment program has impacted our county. Other topics included the effects of limited budgets on the prosecutorial staff and the use and implications of the Three Strikes law as it pertains to our county. Ms. Fladagar’s presentation generated considerable interest from the attendees, which included a question and answer segment. Modesto Masons sincerely thanks Ms. Fladagar for her insightful information, her efforts in service to our county, and for sharing some of her time with us.

Modesto Masonic Lodge is under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of California. Freemasons seek to improve themselves through enlightenment: making good men better. In addition to personal improvement, Masons help to create stronger communities through various philanthropic endeavors.
