Local opinion: Vote out Pima County Attorney Laura Conover

As I run to be your next Pima County Attorney, I am compelled to address the recently revealed crucial issue concerning the ethics of my opponent, Laura Conover.

Initially, I intended to allow the State Bar diversion process to unfold as it should without any comment from me and allow the voters to make their decision based on comparing our respective abilities to perform the job of Pima County Attorney. Sadly, Ms. Conover has chosen to include me in her comments to the public regarding her run-in with the State Bar. I cannot let her unfair and untrue accusations against me go without response.
