Why I am Running for Contra Costa District Attorney
Unifying and Effective Leadership
I am running for Contra Costa District Attorney because I believe the people of Contra Costa deserve experienced, unifying, effective leadership which is beyond reproach. I have served over two decades as a Contra Costa prosecutor and have been involved in our community.
During my 22 years with the Contra Costa DA’s office, I have tried approximately 70 jury trials including gang-related crimes, violent felonies, homicides and sexual assaults. I have supervised the Homicide unit and the general Felony unit. I currently supervise the Family Violence unit which includes sexual assault, domestic violence, and elder abuse. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to provide the effective leadership that the role of District Attorney requires.
Serving and Representing the People
As prosecutors, we serve and represent the people. The foundation of our office must be grounded in honesty, integrity, and trust. As your District Attorney, I will work tirelessly to restore confidence in this office, to seek justice and to once again make our residents proud of their District Attorney’s Office.
Electing a new District Attorney is a very important decision that will have a real impact on public safety for our Contra Costa County communities. Please get involved, sign up for updates and volunteer. I would be honored to hear your concerns, work for your support and hopefully earn your vote.
