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 will seek re-election so that I may 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.
