Santa Barbara County voters will choose who should become the county's next top legal prosecutor. The race for district attorney has been a bitter in-house battle between Senior Deputy DA Joyce Dudley and Chief Trial Deputy Joshua Lynn. Ann Bramsen has been the acting DA since the late Christie Stanley stepped down in January for health reasons.
"Gangs, violent crime, career criminals, we need to do a much better job of dealing with workers compensation and rural crime in the north county. I think the District Attorney's Office could certainly see a lot of improvement in that area and I'm here to pledge that," Lynn said.
"If you arrest the leaders of the gangs, the wannabees will start to fade away, but in additional to aggressively prosecuting gang members, we also have to aggressively seek prevention programs and that's effective prevention programs," Dudley said.
Dudley's supporters include Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown and the Santa Barbara Police Officers Association. Some of Lynn's supporters include former district attorneys Christie Stanley and Tom Sneddon.
