Opinion: Supervisors must consider voters’ wishes in DA pick

Contra Costa voters deserve a district attorney who reflects their values, which have been so clearly expressed over the last several elections. It is critical that the candidates vying for this job immediately disclose their positions on these issues and others that are important to local voters.

To this end, a broad community coalition, including the ACLU of Northern California, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Contra Costa AFL-CIO Central Labor Council, Contra Costa County Racial Justice Coalition, Courage Campaign, #cut50, Democratic Party of Contra Costa County, East County NAACP, Safe Return Project, and Smart Justice California held a non-partisan candidate forum on Aug. 12.
