Safety, Fairness, Justice

“As a former prosecutor,  I will  hold those who break the law accountable and bring new, evidenced-based solutions to ensure the residents of Sacramento County feel safe where they live, work, and raise their family.”

As a former prosecutor, law professor, community leader, and mother, I am running for District Attorney to modernize our criminal justice system and promote new strategies to increase public safety. 

My focus is on serious crimes and ending gun violence. Those who break the law must be held accountable, but we need to find alternative solutions to address less serious crimes. 

As a survivor of domestic abuse, I know what victims face and getting guns out of the hands of abusers will be a priority. 

I am running because our systems, like how we address homelessness, are failing.

We need targeted solutions that prioritize the safety and stability of those experiencing homelessness.  This includes working with the courts to get treatment for those with substance abuse issues and mental illness, and working with the community to help homeless abuse victims, youth, veterans, elderly and disabled-instead of cycling them through jail. 

I am running for DA as an independent, experienced voice with fresh ideas and data driven solutions to improve our justice system and community safety. 

I appreciate your consideration when you vote for District Attorney.
