Dow, who has been a deputy district attorney for the last six years, announced his bid for the office a day after District Attorney Gerald Shea said he would not seek reelection.
“I want to ensure that our county and community continues to be one of the safest and happiest places to live in America,” Dow said.
Dow has a law degree from Santa Clara University and served as a lawyer in the California Army National Guard.
Shea has served as district attorney since 1998. His term ends in January 2015.
The primary election for his replacement will take place in June 2014. Other contenders for the position are expected to announce their candidacies.
