Dear Friend,

For the last twenty-one years, I have dedicated myself to protecting our community in San Luis Obispo County. I have prosecuted some of the most dangerous criminals, while at all times striving to maintain the highest ethical and prosecutorial standards. As Chief Deputy District Attorney and now as Assistant District Attorney, I have worked hard to improve the District Attorney’s office.

I am honored to have been endorsed by our current District Attorney Gerald Shea. He has served with great distinction as our District Attorney for fifteen years. I look forward to continuing his strong record of success and commitment to public safety.

Recent federal court mandates and the passage of Public Safety Realignment present new and serious challenges to public safety in our community. Now, more than ever, our County needs experienced, responsible, creative and proven leadership to forge the criminal justice partnerships that will find solutions to the challenges ahead of us.

The District Attorney’s Office has nearly 100 employees, a budget of $14.8 million, and is responsible for enforcing state and constitutional law.  If elected, I will use my twenty-one years of experience and proven success in the D.A.’s Office to continue to protect the citizens of our County.  I would appreciate your vote.
