NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Dear Friends and Family,
As your Elected Kings County District Attorney, my leadership skills have been demonstrated through the work ethic, dedication, preparedness, honesty, and integrity that I have lived by my entire life. I would be honored to continue serving as your District Attorney.
Since I took office on January 5, 2015, the Kings County District Attorney’s Office has been undergoing a massive transformation. During this time, we have increased the skill of our attorneys, we have instituted a “paper-on-demand” and a digital case processing system, and we have given our prosecutors more “in-house training” than ever before. We have worked with community and law enforcement leaders, and we have had open and honest discussions about how we can improve the service of public safety to the residents of Kings County. We also conducted more community outreach than ever before. We sponsored events to bring awareness to issues that affect public safety; such as, Human Trafficking, Gangs, Child Abuse, Spousal Abuse, Teen Dating Violence, Homelessness, Drunk Driving and many other areas of concern. We have made many other improvements; however, there are too many on which to comment here. I am proud of the progress and relationship building that has taken place; however, there is more work to be done.
Under my leadership, and with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, we have proven results that transformed your District Attorney’s Office into an efficient and highly ethical prosecution team. We have maintained honesty, integrity, skill, and experience. We continue to improve how cases are investigated, processed, and prosecuted. We instituted a District Attorney’s Victim-Witness Assistance unit, and I will continue to give victims, law enforcement, the public, and all people a voice against crime in Kings County.
Today, we are a responsive, fair, and well-trained team who seek truth and deliver justice. I am proud of our hard-work and accomplishments. My predecessor allowed a backlog of approximately 2900 cases to exist. We began 2018 with all viable criminal complaints submitted to court. We went from having nearly thousands of cases under attorney review, to only a few. Our fiscal responsibility is demonstrated by the annual savings in our budgets.
I am asking for your vote to keep the progress going and to maintain the confidence you deserve in your District Attorney.
