I have been a prosecutor in San Luis Obispo County for nearly 29 years. I have worked with both of the candidates for district attorney and know them well.
Dan Dow is by far the better choice to lead our office. Your editorial pointed to Covello’s trial record as a reason for your support of his candidacy. All of our attorneys can try cases. But the elected DA does not try cases — he manages an office. You don’t have to have worked the assembly line to become CEO of GM. I urge your readers to vote for Dan Dow.
