Breadth and Depth

CayucosMay 1, 2014 

Throughout the years 1992 to 2010, I had the unique opportunity to work for the District Attorney’s Office as a private consultant on personnel issues. Recently, I also experienced going through the system with a family member who was victimized.

I am supporting Tim Covello for district attorney because I believe he is the only person with the breadth, depth and experience in office management, as well as in prosecution of felony cases, capable of fulfilling the duties of this critically important position.

The Office of the District Attorney is responsible for the level of safety experienced in our community. The DA sets the standard of performance for other segments of law enforcement. The DA is the only entity who can ensure that victims of crime are treated with respect and are provided protection from perpetrators. I support Tim Covello for the position of district attorney because I know him to be an experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated professional who holds himself and others to a high standard of performance.
