When San Franciscans elect a new district attorney this November, it will be the first time in over a century that an incumbent hasn't been in the race. With current DA George Gascón stepping down, four candidates--all attorneys with experience working within San Francisco's criminal justice system--are vying for the position. We'll hear from the candidates on their vision for the top prosecutor role in San Francisco and their approach to issues like police use of force, illegal drug use, homelessness and more.
