Today, I am proud to announce one of the most significant non-partisan endorsements in our County – the El Dorado County Association of Realtors (EDCAR), which consists of more than 1,100 real estate professionals. Sandi North stated that the EDCAR Board of Directors “unanimously decided to endorse you in your bid for re-election to the position of District Attorney.”

During my time as District Attorney, I have repeatedly worked with members of EDCAR to seek out ways to better investigate and prosecute real estate fraud. EDCAR now joins a growing list of El Dorado County organizations and citizens who support my candidacy for District Attorney, including the Deputy Sheriff’s Association, the El Dorado County Republican Party, and the near unanimous support from the El Dorado County prosecutors and investigators. There is a very clear message here – that the citizens of our County want the continued leadership I have shown to this office for the last 11 years.

EDCAR understands that there is much more to being a prosecutor than just getting a conviction. Being the District Attorney also requires innovative leadership to seek out funding for complex financial scams, and recruitment of talented staff who can handle these cases. In my time as District Attorney, I have shown this kind of leadership along with a true willingness to take on these difficult real estate fraud investigations and prosecutions which are essential to all members of our community and business community across the political spectrum.
