PARIS COLEMAN ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR
SACRAMENTO COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY
SACRAMENTO—May 6—Paris Coleman, a Sacramento County Deputy District
Attorney and former Alameda County prosecutor, announced his candidacy today for
Sacramento County District Attorney, running on his track record as an “experienced
bridge builder” who is committed to making Sacramento “safe for everyone.”


“We need police officers who understand the people they’re serving, prosecutors who
search for the truth without bias, and a system of accountability that doesn’t just seek to
incarcerate but is focused on what we all want – the reduction of crime in our
communities and people held accountable for unlawful behavior,” Coleman said.


With nearly 20 years of experience as a prosecutor, Coleman has handled homicides,
three-strikes cases, adult sexual assault and complex jury trials. He also mentors young
prosecutors.


As Sacramento County DA, Coleman’s top priorities will be to uphold the law; protect
neighborhoods and businesses from crime; defend the rights of the victimized; and
empower communities to reduce crime by “showing up, listening and responding to their
needs.”


Coleman, a Sacramento native and lifelong Democrat, is endorsed by outgoing DA
Anne Marie Schubert, who announced last week that she is running for California
Attorney General.


“Paris Coleman will give 110 percent to uphold the law and protect our community,”
Schubert said. “He is a uniter who knows how to bring people together to solve
problems and he will work tirelessly to enforce the law equitably and fairly.”


“Paris was born and raised in Sacramento and cares deeply about the people of this
county,” said Assemblymember Jim Cooper (D-Elk Grove), a former Captain in the
Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. “He knows how to listen and then act
decisively to uphold the law and bring criminals to justice.”


Coleman spent his formative years in South Land Park, graduated from Kennedy High
School, earned a degree in Business Administration from Sacramento State and law
degree from UC Davis Law School. His parents still live in the South Land Park home
he grew up in, with his sister, who also lives with her family in Sacramento. Coleman
still attends St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, where he was married 26 years ago
and where each of his three children were baptized.
