See and hear the recording of Laura Conover, Democrat for Pima County Attorney, who spoke at the April 6, 2020 meeting of Democrats of Greater Tucson.
Laura Conover said:
The Pima County Attorney manages a number of divisions tasked with keeping our community Safe and Sound.
The County Attorney’s office historically devotes too many resources to aggressive law enforcement for low-level crimes and has pursued felony prosecution of non-violent offenders at historic and alarming rates.
We are less safe because of this agenda. Ensuring our safety requires sound policy and sound leadership.
This is the year we can make responsible changes to make the Pima County Attorney’s office more efficient, effective, and focused on better outcomes for our community.
Laura is a lifelong Tucsonan, attorney, wife and mother, and ardent supporter of the health of all our community’s families. She is a graduate of the University of Arizona for both her undergraduate and law degrees.
After a 16-year career of criminal justice work, including defense, victim advocacy, and almost 2 years of the management of 400 federal contract attorneys, she has the leadership skills the Pima County Attorney’s Office needs, so the next generation of prosecutors may keep us Safe and Sound.
