Among Jenkins’ first orders of business in her new position was telling staffers to review all unclosed plea offers to see if they should be withdrawn; firing over a dozen staffers employed during her predecessor’s tenure; proposing to overhaul the city’s surveillance ordinance; cracking down on anti-Asian attacks; holding drug dealers accountable, among other initiatives. 

She has garnered endorsements for her DA run from a handful of local leaders who did not support the Boudin recall effort, including state Sen. Scott Wiener, Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, state Treasurer Fiona Ma and San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto.
