On this edition of Your Call, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin joins us to take your questions about his record and June 7th recall election.

In 2019, Boudin's campaign focused on reforming the legal system and ending mass incarceration and cash bail. What does his record show so far? Recall supporters say he is "failing to keep San Franciscans safe." The majority of the $6 million in recall money has come from wealthy donors, according to reports. What questions do you have for Chesa Boudin?
