A Tough, Experienced Prosecutor. Fierce Advocate for Crime Victims.
Clear Choice of Law Enforcement
I PROMISE TO CONTINUE TO WORK HARD EVERY DAY TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE.
About Cynthia Zimmer
I have a lifetime commitment to public safety and justice.
Kern County is my home. I went to college here, raised a family here, and this is where I began my career as a Kern County Deputy District Attorney 36 years ago.
In 2018, I was elected to serve as Kern County’s District Attorney. It is a humbling and incredible honor to have the opportunity to provide justice for crime victims and stand in defense of Kern County families and values.
In June of 2022, I was re-elected to serve 4 more years as Kern County’s
District Attorney allowing me to continue to uphold the rule of law, be an
advocate for crime victims, and seek fair and equal justice for all.
I offer my continuing promise to bring all of my experience to bear, and work as hard as I can to keep our community safe.
