District Attorney Candidates Remain Scarce

On behalf of Jasti & Khandhar   |   Firm News

The number of candidates for District Attorney remain scarce. During the 2020 general election, very few district attorney races were contested. Consequently DA candidates do not face pressure to prioritize issues that voters value.

This avoids potential progress when it comes to combating issues such as abusive policing practices and excessive incarceration.

As Molly Collins, advocacy director for American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin simply states, “DAs could do more.”
