Do Not Vote For

20220512 SVPAF DA Endorsement No Confidence.jpg

We feel Sajid Khan's policy positions are not in alignment with the duties of the Office of District Attorney for Santa Clara County.

 

Sajid is a very kind and good-natured person.  He is a great attorney and we respect him.  This decision is not an attack on him personally or on his abilities as a lawyer.  

County and City Measures
