San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow reaffirmed on social media Thursday that he’s running for re-election. He has a challenger supported by the family of Andrew Holland, who died last year while in custody at the San Luis Obispo County Jail.
The Hollands are also trying to unseat Sheriff Ian Parkinson.
Carty Holland, the father of Andrew Holland, donated a total of $50,000 to two candidates running to replace Dow and Parkinson. Holland says he and his wife Sharon were moved to support the new candidates.
