Local opinion: Laura Conover has failed this community

Our current County Attorney, a former criminal defense attorney, has failed this community. She should not be re-elected.

The position of County Attorney requires scrupulous honesty, integrity and unquestionable ethics. Laura Conover has failed.

The State Bar is monitoring Laura Conover for the next year because she failed in her ethical responsibilities as a lawyer. Never before has the State Bar monitored an elected Pima County Attorney because of misconduct. It is shameful.

Additionally, a primary focus of the County Attorney must be to protect the safety of the citizens of Pima County from violent and dangerous offenders. Laura Conover has failed in this as well.
