MARTINEZ, Calif. (KGO) -- The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors will review a dozen applications for a new district attorney.
The position became available in June after Mark Peterson resigned.
A grand jury found that Peterson illegally spent campaign donations on personal items, and then lied about it.
The board will choose finalists who will be invited to take part in a public forum in two weeks.
The most qualified candidate will serve the remainder of Peterson's term, which expires in January 2019.
