SAN DIEGO — Two candidates are challenging incumbent City Attorney Mara Elliot for her job in the March 3 California Primary.

Cory Briggs and Peter Mesich both want to unseat incumbent Mara Elliott.

On her website, Elliott says she is proud of defending victims of domestic violence and safeguarding taxpayer dollars.

Briggs writes on his website that he wants to be a transparent City Attorney, advocating for open government. He also wants to protect the rights of voters when it comes to voting on new measures.

Peter Mesich, a former San Diego Deputy City Attorney, says on his website that he has been responsible for reviewing thousands of DUI and misdemeanor court cases to determine if the city should move forward with prosecution.
