San Diegans Against Crime Endorse Judge Dumanis
(San Diego, Calif.) – San Diegans Against Crime (SDAC) has endorsed former Judge and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis for County Board of Supervisors.
"Bonnie is a problem solver who can bring people together from all walks of life to reach agreement,” said Jim Koerber, President of SDAC. “Bonnie has seen firsthand the impact of homelessness, mental health, and substance abuse issues in our community -- and she knows what it takes to address these problems. Her passion for public service and commitment to San Diego make her the ideal person to serve as the next Supervisor for District Four."
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.
