Dan Dow: The Choice of Law Enforcement for District Attorney
Deputy Sheriff’s Association is Latest to Endorse
San Luis Obispo – Deputy District Attorney Dan Dow has been endorsed by yet another law enforcement organization in the race for District Attorney. The San Luis Obispo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association publicly endorsed Dow on Tuesday.
“This organization includes more than 150 law enforcement professionals that share my vision for public safety,” said Dow. “They want a District Attorney that is open, available, and able to work with others to achieve common goals.”
Every law enforcement organization that has taken a position in the race for District Attorney has endorsed Dow. This most recent endorsement comes in addition to the Paso Robles Police Officer’s Association, Atascadero Police Association, Arroyo Grande Police Officer’s Association, Morro Bay Police Officer’s Association, and the Association that represents the San Luis Obispo County Deputy District Attorneys.
“We looked at the candidates for District Attorney and decided that Dan was the most qualified to lead based on his experience in the court room, in the military, and in the private sector,” said Deputy Sheriff’s Association Vice President Steve Hendrickson. “Dan has our complete support. We will be working hard to see him elected in June.”
Dow has been a Deputy District Attorney for more than eight years. In 2013 he was awarded the John L. Seitz Community Service Award from the San Luis Obispo County Bar Association in recognition for his efforts to establish the Veterans Treatment Court in San Luis Obispo County.
As an enlisted soldier, Dan attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA where he became fluent as a Korean Linguist. Now, twenty-three years later, he serves as a Major, Command Judge Advocate in the California Army National Guard. His military experience and successful prosecution in the courtroom has helped him gain close relationships with the law enforcement officers that patrol our streets and manage our local custody facilities.
Dan and Wendy, his wife of 21 years, live in San Luis Obispo County with their two children. He is the clear frontrunner for District Attorney.
