Meet DA Nancy E. O'Malley

DDA Eric Swalwell Elected to Congress

This November gave the people of California’s 15th congressional district something to be thankful for: their voice in the US House of Representatives will now be Alameda County DDA Eric Swalwell. The newly redrawn district (which is composed of all or parts of Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, Hayward, and Union City, among other cities) will now be represented by the second-youngest member of Congress.

Swalwell grew up in Dublin, and but for a few years in Maryland for college and law school, has been in the Bay Area all his life. He started at the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office in 2006, and joined the Dublin City Council in 2010. In 2012 he took unpaid leave from the DA’s office to conduct his congressional campaign. During his time with our office he prosecuted thousands of cases including 34 jury trials in cases of domestic violence, human trafficking, and murder. Eric served as Alameda County’s hate-crimes prosecutor from 2010-2012.

On the Dublin City Council Eric worked to balance the city’s budget without service cuts or lay-offs. He was also instrumental in helping bring businesses into the area, and connecting the city of Dublin to the Livermore wine region. He served as an advisor to the Tri-Valley Conservancy, a group that seeks to protect open space, and as a youth soccer coach for the San Ramon Soccer Club.

Eric’s intelligence, drive, and commitment to the community will serve him well in Congress. Though he will certainly be missed, we at the District Attorney’s Office are extremely proud and excited to see one of our own elected to national office. We know he will continue to do great things for Alameda County from Washington.
