From the blog
"San Mateo County's District Attorney has generally run against no opponent, for many, many years.
San Mateo County needs a fresh perspective for it's District Attorney Office. The deadline for filing for candidacy for the Office of District Attorney, to run against the current DA Steve Wagstaffe is drawing near.
San Mateo County needs a DA who will not be lax in prosecuting sexual crimes against children, as the current DA's record proves. We need a DA who will prosecute child molesters to the fullest extent of the law, rather than allowing sex offenders to avoid registration, and serve overly short jail sentences.
We need someone to run who has compassion for the LAW ABIDING citizens of the County of San Mateo, and who won't bow to the wishes of the powerful and wealthy criminals in our midst.
We need to have a candidate who will truly "seek justice and accountability for all who violate the law in our county." and "also seek to provide assistance for those victimized by criminals."
