As a prosecutor and former Deputy Attorney General, I’m committed to the safety of our neighborhoods.
I voted against letting criminals out of prison early. I have voted to crack down on criminals who use guns and on sex traffickers. Recently, I opposed further changes to public safety laws which would have reduced sentences for violent offenders.
