FAIRFIELD — District Attorney Donald A. du Bain has submitted his letter of resignation Thursday to Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Linda Seifert.
Du Bain resignation is effective Aug. 15. He begins work Aug. 18 with the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, he said in his resignation letter. He has worked in the District Attorney’s Office since 1993.
“I leave this office with enormous gratitude for the contributions that the members of my office have made toward protecting our community’s safety,” du Bain wrote in his resignation letter. “The county is fortunate to have so many dedicated and hard-working employees, including attorneys, investigators, victim advocates and support staff, employed within the District Attorney’s Office.”
He wrote that managing the office during lean budget years was a challenge. He mentioned the collaboration that was necessary to launch the Solano Family Justice Center in 2013 at its new Fairfield location, establish the truancy court to help ensure that children graduate from school, and start a real estate fraud unit to catch those who target seniors and other vulnerable members of the community.
Prosecutor Krishna Abrams defeated du Bain in the June 3 election. Du Bain ran unopposed in 2010 to become district attorney.
