Dave Jones has a long public service career which makes him exceptionally qualified to serve as California’s next Attorney General. He represented low-income families and individuals as a legal aid lawyer. He knows what it takes to run the Department of Justice, having served as Special Assistant to former United States Attorney General Janet Reno. As a City Councilmember he put into practice proven anti-crime and law enforcement strategies at the community level. As a state Assemblymember he successfully authored gun control, consumer protection, civil justice, and other legislation.
Jones has opposed President Trump’s Muslim Bans, deportation of immigrants, attacks on civil rights and a woman’s right to choose, dismantling of healthcare reform, undermining of environmental laws, denial of climate change, undermining of public schools and teachers, attacks on unions and working people, and other efforts to undermine what Californians value.
Jones will continue criminal justice reform, with a focus on re-entry and rehabilitation programs for offenders returning to our communities, and work to restore trust between law enforcement and communities while holding accountable those who violate the law.
Jones has long championed single payer healthcare reform. He is the first statewide elected official to publicly endorse Senate Bill 562 while it was still in the California legislature.
He is also the first statewide elected official to publicly sign a pledge stating that he does not, and will not take corporate money from the oil and insurance industries.
