The Reformer Candidate


In the 30 years I’ve been working to serve the people of New York, I have provided resolutions to thousands of individuals seeking justice. I have managed the legal and administrative operations of an office that included 1,500 law enforcement professionals. I have successfully prosecuted large-scale drug operators, spearheaded gun violence initiatives, and introduced the City’s first gun buy-back programs. I have collaborated with numerous Federal and local agencies to protect our neighborhoods from crime and injustice, removed teen prostitutes from the streets, and targeted their pimps and patrons. I have targeted diversity and discrimination issues in employment, housing, and public accommodations, and worked with our students to keep them on the right path in life. I have revamped a city agency by resolving its serious backlog of cases that had threatened to shut it down and restructuring it into an efficient office that was able to deliver services once again. And one of my proudest achievements was spearheading ComALERT, a program that helps the formerly incarcerated successfully transition home and become productive members of society.

I look forward to serving all my fellow Brooklynites and uniting us all under One Justice.
