To Whom It May Concern:

Shortly after he announced his candidacy for reelection as the Placer County District Attorney, Scott Owens received the unanimous endorsement of the Placer County Deputy District Attorney Association.  The organization is comprised of the people that work to carry out Scott’s mission as a leader, and given the professionalism and integrity with which he leads our office, the endorsement was never in question. 

For years, Scott has honorably distinguished himself as a tireless prosecutor, devoting his career to the safety of the citizens of Placer County, and to the fair and impartial administration of the criminal justice system.  Since his election, he has aggressively targeted narcotics traffickers, gang members, sex offenders, and other violent criminals.  He has practically and effectively addressed the issues that realignment has presented, and he has implemented changes within the office that have provided all of us with the opportunity to thrive and better ourselves as prosecutors.  Simply stated, Scott and his administration have created a work environment that is positive, safe, and constructive.  Every employee, regardless of their assignment, is afforded the opportunity to learn and to grow.

On top of his professional achievements, Scott remains a proud father and a devoted husband.  He leads by example, and while he takes his work extremely seriously, he makes sure not to take himself too seriously.  As president of the Deputy District Attorney Association, I am proud to convey to Scott our endorsement for another term as our District Attorney.
