Barbara LaWall has served as Pima County Attorney since Nov. 1996, re-elected in 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012 and is seeking her sixth term in office.
In the August 30, 2016 primary she faces opposition from former Public Defender Joel Feinman, who worked there for 8 years.
“I have spent four decades protecting the public safety of this community, prosecuting the offenders who threaten and endanger us all: the drunk drivers, repeat burglars and thieves, gang-bangers and narco-traffickers, child molesters, rapists and murderers. My heartfelt thanks and deep gratitude goes out to all victims of crime for the inspiration and strength they provide on a daily basis by allowing me to hear their stories, and for being vulnerable by sharing their heartache and pain. For teaching me to have an open heart, and for changing and enriching my life forever, I am eternally grateful.”
