Favor for Franklin County:

PEOPLE, POLICY, PREVENTION & PUBLIC SAFETY

 

I am running for Franklin County Prosecutor because I want to support our community in becoming a model county that addresses public safety while also working to reform an unjust, inequitable system. I’m running for Franklin County Prosecutor because I believe the office can lead with transparency, prioritize accountability, and honor the dignity of all Franklin County residents. I am clear that this office is about you as much as it is about me. I humbly request your input, support and partnership. I hope you will resounding say “All in Favor.”

People

As the next Franklin County Prosecutor, I will implement evidence-based programs that seek to hold violent offenders of the law accountable, minimize court involvement and unnecessary incarceration for low level offense, reduce reoffending, keep people free of criminal records and able to work, and direct those in need of treatment to available resources.

 

I will work in partnership with every city’s administration across the county, along with county agencies, community organizations and advocates to provide innovative solutions to reduce the occurrence of violent crime in Franklin County.

Policy

Prevention

As the next Franklin County Prosecution, I will focus on prevention as a key plank in confronting and disrupting youth violence. Youth violence is a public health challenge that affects thousands of young people in all communities each day. It’s a vicious cycle that is linked to negative health and well-being outcomes and disproportionately impacts communities of color. It doesn’t have to be this way. Addressing the short- and long-term consequences of violence strains community resources and limits the resources that communities can use to address other needs. Youth violence CAN be prevented. 

As the next Franklin County Prosecutor, I am committed to creating safer communities through the implementation of innovative policies that seek to prevent, address and reduce the occurrence of violent crime in Franklin County. The traditional approach to prosecution has over-relied on criminal convictions and incarceration to combat crime despite the decades of research that have failed to show a correlation between aggressive, antiquated policies and the reduction of violence in the United States.

 

As the next Franklin County Prosecutor, I intend to hold violent offenders accountable. I will also work to improve public safety by evaluating the social drivers of violence (i.e., poverty, Covid19). In collaboration with other agencies and community organizations, I will work to (1) create violence reduction initiatives paired with social services and peer-to-peer counseling, and (2) increasing the number of diversion programs ensuring that people can get access to mental health treatment and substance abuse services.
