Testimonials

  • We are grateful to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors for recognizing that in order to achieve true public safety in our County, we must commit to fair compensation for criminal prosecutors.  Attracting – and keeping – the best prosecutors requires that our pay be competitive amongst the nine Bay Area Counties; the Board of Supervisors recognized that and we are appreciative of their efforts to help us maintain a strong District Attorney’s Office.
