With dramatically increasing rates of violent crime and a growing backlog of criminal cases in our courts, Monroe and Conecuh Counties are experiencing a pivotal moment. We need a District Attorney who is a strong supporter of law enforcement officers and who is committed to timely resolution of criminal cases so that victims and defendants do not unnecessarily wait years for their day in court. We need a District Attorney who believes in equal protection of the law without regard to race or economic status. We need a District Attorney who will have an open-door policy for the community to listen to concerns about crime. We need a District Attorney who will support and establish programs to help reduce crime by addressing its causes. We need a District Attorney who will partner with government agencies, schools, mental health organizations, and other community groups to assist families struck by violence. We need a District Attorney who will be a steadfast advocate for citizens such as our children, elderly, and disabled.
We need Bob.
