The Long Beach City Prosecutor's Office is recognized as one of the most innovative and community-based prosecuting agencies in the nation. This did not happen by accident, but by hard work and the dedication of many people in my office and in the Long Beach community. The reason I am running for re-election is that I want to continue the hard work we have started.
I know that working together we can accomplish even more. I hope you will join me.
Alexander Hamilton noted, "the first duty of society is justice." That simple statement remains true today.
While our criminal justice system has made great progress, we have further to go before we can rest. Most importantly, we must make sure that the changes we make today are not just well-intentioned, but also accomplish the goal of making Long Beach an even safer place in which to live, work and raise a family.
