Madera District Attorney David Linn.
Madera County District Attorney David A. Linn has announced his candidacy for re-election.
The primary will be June 5.
Linn said that although when was first elected he was not sure whether he would seek re-election, he has now decided to.
All necessary documents and filing fees were provided to the Madera County Clerk’s Office/Elections Division earlier this week.
Linn said his candidacy will be a working campaign so that he can continue to efficiently run the District Attorney’s office and also continue his ongoing investigation of all Madera County supervisors and the county administration.
Linn stated he was running for a number of reasons. First, he has been contacted by citizens throughout the county who have strongly encouraged him to remain in office so that he can fulfill his longstanding pledge to “Clean up Madera County.” Secondly, although he has completed all of the promises he initially made to the voters in 2014, he wants to ensure that Madera County’s plan to construct a new District Attorney’s Office in Madera County and his goal to make the District Attorney’s office more efficient through computerization are finalized.
Lastly, Linn stated “the fact that none of the other individuals who have stated that they are going to run for District Attorney, or have filed, have not been residents of Madera County for more than a few months, if at all. I have lived in and practiced law in Madera County for 40 years. I believe that if you want to represent the people of this county, you have to know them, their problems and the problems with their government.”
