most rewarding part of being your District Attorney is knowing that I
am making a difference in the community that three generations of my
family call home. There is no greater honor than serving those who have
shaped the person that I am today, and no greater reward than knowing
that my neighbors and peers have confidence in me.”
Soon our nation will be geared up for an important national election – and Livingston County residents will be as involved, attentive and vigorously engaged as any around our nation. But while we still have a relatively quiet moment, I want to speak to you about another very important upcoming election – the election for Livingston County District Attorney. I would be honored to have your support to continue the work that I have begun as your DA.
Ever since I was a young child attending York Central School, with a mother who was a teacher and father who served as a New York State Trooper, I was educated on the importance of public service and the integrity of the criminal justice system. As your District Attorney I have dedicated myself to representing the People of the State of New York and the people of Livingston County in all criminal matters within this county. I hope the results of the past four years – a record number of cases handled, a record number of convictions secured, a new and highly effective Drug Task Force, a focus on securing justice for elders, children and victims of domestic violence and sexual assault – has proven to you that I take my job very seriously.
When it comes to law enforcement and the courts, nothing matters more than years of experience in seeking justice as a criminal prosecutor. I came into the position of Livingston County District Attorney having honed my legal and courtroom skills as a prosecutor in the very busy and demanding Monroe County District Attorneys Office, where I personally handled a caseload that is comparable to what my entire current office handles on an annual basis. My approach to being your District Attorney is simple: Proactive, aggressive and efficient prosecution of all crimes in our community. I am especially proud to tell you that my personal felony trial conviction rate over the past four years is 100%. Under my leadership, our office has been determined and effective. We haven’t backed away from sensitive cases, and we have prosecuted a record number of drug cases and other major felonies. We have stepped up DWI fine collections, and participate in a newly formed multi-disciplinary task force to aid a dramatically growing number of victims of elder abuse.
My message to you is simple: As your District Attorney I have the honor and privilege of spending everyday fighting for you in court, protecting your families and serving the wonderful community that has given me so much. I am honored to be your District Attorney and look forward to working with you, my tremendous staff of dedicated attorneys and valued colleagues in law enforcement in continuing to shape the future of this great county.
Thank you for the privilege of serving you.
Livingston County District Attorney
