May 11, 2018 – The Nevada County Deputy Sheriff’s Association has come to a decision on making an endorsement for the 2018 District Attorney Candidacy.
The Deputy Sheriff’s Association proudly endorses the incumbent, Cliff Newell, for the office of the District Attorney for Nevada County. The men and women of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association have developed a good working relationship with Cliff and his deputy district attorneys throughout the years Cliff has been in office, and we look forward to continuing that relationship of support, trust, partnership,and open communication. These relationships are imperative for public safety and the efficient prosecution of criminals in our county, and we believe the Nevada County criminal justice system will be best served with Cliff Newell holding the office of the District Attorney for another term.
After several members holding interviews with the two candidates and attending community forums, the Deputy Sheriff’s Association held a general meeting per their bylaws to vote whether to endorse a candidate and if so, which one. The vote was passed unanimously by the quorum of the membership present.
