District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis has announced that she’ll resign in July as she explores a bid for the County Board of Supervisors.

Dumanis has been DA since 2003, and before saying goodbye she put a careful succession plan into place. She’s hand-picked Chief Deputy District Attorney Summer Stephan as her interim replacement.
