    “As a congregation concerned with various criminal justice issues, we are pleased to invite the two Democratic candidates for Pima County Attorney to an evening with the voters. 

    Invited Guests: Barbara LaWall (D, declined) and Joel Feinman (D) and Cyndi Tuell (G). Moderator: Bruce Burke (local attorney)

    Barbara LaWall has been Pima County’s Attorney since 1996 when she became the first female elected to the position. Her top priorities as Pima County Attorney have been holding criminals accountable through tough prosecution, working to prevent crime in our community, providing a variety of supportive services to victims of crime, and running a cost-effective office.

    Joel Feinman began his career in the Pima County Public Defender’s office as a criminal trial lawyer right out of U of A law school. He has vowed to improve the felony trial win rate and the attorney turnover rate within the Pima County Attorney’s office.

    Cyndi Tuell  is an attorney and conservation advocate for nonprofit environmental conservation groups. She also has worked as a private attorney on public lands management issues in Arizona since 2007.

    The Democratic Primary election is August 30, 2016. The last day to register to vote, or change party affiliation, is August 1.”
