Laura Conover

Laura Conover has served as an advocate for the Tucson community and criminal justice reform for the past 20 years. Conover was raised in Tucson, attended the University of Arizona, and has been volunteering for the Democratic Party and Democratic Candidates since she was a high school student. Since graduating from the University of Arizona Law School in 2005, Conover has dedicated her career to helping the Southern Arizona community by defending the poor, advocating for victims, and fighting for justice in local and federal courts. She decided to run for the position of Pima County Attorney to bring much-needed reform to Southern Arizona’s criminal justice system by re-framing the current priorities away from jailing the poor, addicted, and mentally ill, to focusing instead on violent and financial crimes. Laura’s experience will also help guide and inspire our next generation of young prosecutors. She is committed to helping non-violent drug offenders get treatment instead of prison. That formula will ensure the safety of County residents and reduce costs for Pima County taxpayers while improving outcomes for those caught up in the criminal justice system.
