About the Event

Candidate Forum co sponsored with the Alameda County Bar Association

This is the first time in decades Alameda County will elect a new District Attorney. Nancy O’Malley, the current DA, is retiring and the upcoming election is the first time in decades that an incumbent DA, or a person appointed by a retiring DA, is not running for reelection.

District attorneys in California have tremendous power to impact the lives of millions of people, their families, and entire communities.  If someone is accused of committing a crime, it is not the police but the DA who has the sole power to decide if criminal charges are filed and the severity of those charges. They alone decide who is deserving of a jail or prison sentence and who will instead be routed into a diversion program to help rebuild their life, or have charges dismissed.
