The June 23rd primary is coming up soon – read Ed's action plan now to see a new vision of our local justice system.
With your vote for me as District Attorney by absentee ballot or in person on June 23, you and I will make sure everyone has equal protection in our justice system.
An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
"As a progressive community, we will reject discrimination so everyone has equal protection of our justice system."
