Analyzing the six candidates running for district attorney, this reader feels the best choice would be Jackie Lacey, who is the chief deputy district attorney, number 161 on your ballot. Ms. Lacey is a career prosecutor who has climbed up the ladder during her 26 years with the district attorney's office.
The key here, in my opinion, is having a candidate who would not be using the office for higher aspirations, such as attorney general. Her main objective is just wanting to be a great district attorney, period. With her 26-year tenure in the D.A.'s office, her ability to adapt and lead with the ever-changing technology upon us, her skills in supervising employees, not being afraid in making changes, and valuable inside experience, Jackie Lacey will be the best person in saving the D.A. much money, time and resources. Jackie Lacey will make a great district attorney. She is the right person for the right job with the right skills as our next District Attorney of Los Angeles County.
