Former O.C. Undersheriff Raul Ramos and Former O.C. Assistant Sheriff Rocky Hewitt Back Spitzer


Spitzer's Qualifications And Endorsements Make Him The Unmatched Public Safety Leader In The Race For DA.


ORANGE COUNTY – May 1 – Former reserve police officer and top prosecutor Todd Spitzer, the public safety expert in the race for District Attorney, scored endorsements from Raul Ramos, former Undersheriff of the Orange County Sheriff's Department and Dr. Rocky Hewitt, former Assistant Sheriff of the Orange County Sheriff's Department, adding to Spitzer's long list of law enforcement endorsers.


The overwhelming support from police chiefs and deputy district attorneys highlights Spitzer’s track record of prosecuting some of the County’s most dangerous criminals and emphasizes the need to elect a public safety leader with an ethical foundation to the Orange County District Attorney's office.


Todd Spitzer responded, “It is the greatest honor to receive any endorsement from individuals who dedicate their lives to keeping Americans safe and who know from first-hand experience the type of leadership we need to bring down the crime rate."


He continued, "I know what it takes to get justice for victims and work with the community to solve crimes and ensure violent felons stay behind bars. But we also must work to stop crime before it starts. As a former high school teacher, School Board Trustee, and business owner, I know that solutions to complex crime problems begin by solving critical issues like homelessness, our kids’ broken education system, and ensuring that our economy is growing to provide job opportunities for everyone."


Even Tony Rackauckas’ Senior Deputy District Attorney, Karen Schatzle, has come forward in overwhelming support for Spitzer’s campaign, triumphing his accomplishments as an Orange County Prosecutor.

David Snowden

Chief of Costa Mesa Police Department, retired
