Here's a list of our recommendations to date for the June 3 primary.


<b>District Attorney</b> — <b>Jill Ravitch</b>

Ravitch is a tough prosecutor with a track record of making good choices in difficult cases. She has spent much of her first term rebuilding an office that lost about a dozen lawyers, investigators and support personnel to budget cuts. With the office returning to pre-recession staffing, she's positioned to manage a challenging caseload.

<b>Auditor-Controller</b> — <b>David Sundstrom</b>

Sundstrom has a record of caution and prudence as the county's chief financial officer. Having previously helped Orange County recover from bankruptcy, he brings crisis experience shared by few of his peers.

<b>Supervisor, </b>2nd District — <b>David Rabbitt</b>

Rabbitt has proven to be a calm and steady leader, particularly in providing guidance and clear thinking in areas such as clean power and pensions. He also has been a leader in helping the county find more money for road repair.

<b>Supervisor, </b>4th District — <b>Ken Churchill</b>

No other candidate can match Churchill's knowledge of the county's financial challenges, particularly as they relate to pensions and potholes. In addition to offering a background in financial management, he comes with hands-on experience in alternative energy and environmental protection.
