Los Angeles, July 26th – Today the Alan Jackson campaign released their fundraising totals showing approximately $230,000 collected from more than 350 donors. Jackson exceeded his fundraising goals even while successfully prosecuting a complex death penalty case. Jackson’s dedication to justice in the courtroom remains unwavering.

Deputy DA Alan Jackson said, “I am grateful to have earned such broad and deep support throughout the County. It is my intention to become the next DA and make sure that victims and their families have an advocate who fights tirelessly for justice.”

John S. Thomas, Jackson’s strategist noted, “By hitting our campaign goals we are very competitive in this race. Just like in the courtroom, Jackson is yet again surpassing expectations and proving that he is a force to be reckoned with. Clearly this contest is evolving into a two person race.”

Alan Jackson has been a prosecutor in the LA County District Attorney’s office for over 16 years where he has tried nearly 60 felony cases, more than half of which have been murder trials.  He spent five years prosecuting hardcore gang cases in Compton, after which he moved to the Major Crimes Division where he has led the prosecution in some of California’s highest profile cases. Prior to becoming a Deputy DA, Jackson served in the United States Air Force as a Jet mechanic. Currently, Jackson serves as the Assistant Head Deputy of the Major Crimes Division where he oversees the office’s most complex and high-profile cases.
