Candidates for
District Attorney

Jeff Nieman
Candidate for District Attorney, District 15

Our community deserves a District Attorney who not only has sufficient experience, but even more importantly, has a proven track record of moving our criminal justice system in a progressive direction. I have over 17 years of experience in the criminal courts of Chatham and Orange Counties and have launched multiple initiatives in that time to reduce the criminalization of poverty, mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline.

Kayley Taber
Candidate for District Attorney, District 18

I have the compassion, dedication to innovation, and commitment to the community that is demanded by this important leadership position. I believe that diverse voices & experiences lead to more equitable outcomes in the courts. My core belief is that understanding our past is key to finding a path forward that is both restorative and just for all. If elected, I will be our first woman District Attorney and the first with both 25 years of experience and certification as a NC Criminal Law Specialist.
