Deputy District Attorneys Endorse Judge Dumanis for Supervisor
(San Diego, Calif.) - The San Diego County Deputy District Attorneys Association (DDAA) has endorsed former Judge and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis for County Board of Supervisors.
"The members of our association have been a direct witness to Bonnie Dumanis' lifelong commitment to public service,” said Steve Walter, President of the DDAA. “From the day she began as a typist, to the day she retired as District Attorney, Bonnie has worked toward improving San Diego's quality of life. We firmly believe that she has the experience, dedication, and ability to be an excellent Supervisor and we are proud to endorse her."
Judge Bonnie Dumanis grew up in a working class family in a tough town south of Boston. Her father was a truck driver for more than 25 years and a proud Teamster, while her mother ran the government’s WIC (Women Children and Infants) program, which provides support to low income families. Bonnie put herself through college and law school while working as a junior clerk typist. Facing institutionalized discrimination at a less tolerant time, she became a prosecutor, judge and was the first openly gay elected prosecutor in America. During her 15 years as District Attorney she helped make San Diego one of the safest big cities in America with crime at a 47-year low when she retired.
