My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensuring the safety of the community from violent criminals. In our new “Crime Strategies Unit” experienced prosecutors will be part of a more proactive, data-driven approach to crime-fighting.
  • Transparency of the District Attorney’s office. We must provide the data about which charges prosecutors decline to pursue, or which sentences they request to be able to properly reform the criminal justice system..
  • Battling implicit bias. We must provide training and oversight of police to root out implicit bias in how they approach their job and interactions with residents.
