San Francisco Chronicle:
In Alameda County, civil rights attorney Pamela Price, a key player in the East Bay justice reform movement, appeared headed for a November runoff against high-ranking D.A.’s Office veteran Terry Wiley, in early results.
Price had numerous progressive endorsements while Wiley had support from within the office and, like Price, did a heavy fundraising haul. Price had 40% of the vote to Wiley’s 31%.
Alameda County voters are choosing a new district attorney for the first time since Nancy O’Malley took office in 2009. The candidates are vying to take the reins of the agency at a time when fears of rising gun violence in Oakland collide with calls for greater investment in criminal justice reforms.
