As Public Defender I promise to:

  1. Dispel misconceptions of the Public Defender by educating and engaging the community on the importance of public defenders and working on community programs to give clients an option for work, school, mental health, substance abuse and access to diversion programs, jobs and housing.
  2. Maximize the use of taxpayer dollars by decreasing high turnover rates, training zealous advocates, and advocating for funding along with creating an atmosphere where the attorneys feel appreciated and not overburdened.
  3. Promote criminal justice reform to rid the system of sentencing disparities and mass incarceration.
