Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price says she’s the right person for the job despite efforts to recall her.
Price held a town hall Wednesday at Niles Discovery Church in Fremont and said she continues to try and lower crime around the region.
Price took only written questions submitted before and during the town hall. She also addressed property crime by saying the county is receiving $2 million from the state to fight retail theft. She said $300,000 of that grant will go towards a restorative justice program.
The effort to recall Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price moved forward last month. The group behind it is known as Save Alameda For Everyone or SAFE and made up of residents, activists and members of families who have been affected by her policies.
The organization has 160 days to collect signatures from 10% of registered voters in Alameda County, which is about 98,000 signatures. All of those signatures then have to be verified. If they get enough verified signatures, then the recall will make its way onto the ballot for voters to decide if Price should stay in office.
