District Attorney Endorsement Checklist
Our membership has already debated and decided that endorsing prosecutorial candidates is possible under certain conditions. Now we need to agree on what those conditions are!

Ideally, the final checklist will serve as a tool to streamline the committee's endorsement process. By sharing this with the Electoral Politics Committee and/or directly with candidates, we can minimize the amount of research and vetting necessary to come to a determination.

Below is a list of some potential questions or litmus test items we brainstormed. Please rate each and then add new suggests at the bottom.
