David Onek represents a new and progressive vision as he campaigns for District Attorney of San Francisco.

David is a former San Francisco Police Commissioner and top criminal justice staffer in the San Francisco Mayor’s Office. He is currently a Senior Fellow at the Berkeley Center for Criminal Justice and the host of the Criminal Justice Conversations Podcast. David launched his career in criminal justice working with community-based organizations to keep young people in school and out of the criminal justice system.

That’s why David is building a powerful grassroots campaign by embarking on a series of 500 community events like this one all across the city.

At the start of David’s campaign, over 1,100 people have already signed on in support – elected officials, community and advocacy leaders, law enforcement officials, legal community members, neighbors and friends. You can learn more about David’s campaign at and can listen to his podcasts at
