Glenn Jennings

Former Nevada County Assistant District Attorney Glenn Jennings announced Monday that he’ll run against his former boss for district attorney.

Jennings, 61, has served as a prosecutor for over 20 years. He worked under current District Attorney Cliff Newell from 2014 to October 2015.

“I saw my opponent hadn’t drawn a candidate or opposition, and I couldn’t stand by the sidelines without giving voters a choice,” Jennings said.
