After the high-profile recall of District Attorney Chesa Boudin, four candidates now are seeking to be the next elected top prosecutor in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Standard interviewed each candidate to learn more about them and hear their views about public safety, the drug crisis and politics.

Starting next week, The Standard will publish an interview a day in the following order: attorney Maurice Chenier, ex-Fire and Police Commissioner Joe Alioto Veronese, former Police Commissioner John Hamasaki and finally appointed DA Brooke Jenkins.
