SACRAMENTO – Congressman Ami Bera (CA-07) announced his endorsement of prosecutor Thien Ho in his campaign for Sacramento County District Attorney.
"As an immigrant, educator and experienced prosecutor, Thien Ho is the right person to help make Sacramento County safer while ensuring we have a justice system that serves everyone equally," said Congressman Ami Bera (D–Sacramento County). “With hate crimes towards Asian Americans and other people of color on the rise, Thien brings a much needed and diverse voice to the District Attorney's Office to champion safety, justice and equity for all communities.”
“I am honored to have Congressman Bera join our campaign for District Attorney,” said Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Thien Ho. “Congressman Bera is not only a trailblazer for the AAPI community but also an accomplished leader for our region.”
Congressman Bera joins a large and growing coalition of Sacramento County leaders and organizations, including Senator Richard Pan, Sacramento County Supervisor Rich Desmond and the Sacramento Metro Chamber PAC.
Ho’s campaign has opened a wide lead in fundraising with more than $519,000 in 2021.
As a refugee who fled Vietnam seeking freedom and opportunities for a better life, Thien Ho is the embodiment of the American Dream. As a lawyer with 23 years of experience, Thien has pursued justice every time he steps into the courtroom. As a deputy district attorney, Thien has prosecuted the most violent and dangerous criminals, including the East Area Rapist/Golden State Killer. As the Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney for Sacramento County, Thien manages and oversees an entire bureau of lawyers who protect the public, collaborate with community partners, and guard the integrity of the criminal justice system.
