ISSUES

PUBLIC SAFETY

We must begin to focus on prosecuting violent crimes in Hamilton County. As it stands now, witnesses are not being protected, cases are being backlogged, and violent crimes are going un-prosecuted. As your next District Attorney, I will work with my office to make Hamilton County a safer place for everyone to live.

  • Improve protection of witnesses in cases of violent crime

  • Expedite trials for cases of violent crime

  • Prosecute crimes committed with firearms to the fullest extent

DECRIMINALIZE MARIJUANA

Let's face it: it's time to legalize marijuana. We should not be sending people to jail for using marijuana—period.

  • Make our courts more efficient by shifting focus to prosecution of violent crimes in Hamilton County

PROFESSIONALISM

The people of Hamilton County deserve a District Attorney with experience of leading organizations in a professional, impartial manner. As former Hamilton County Commissioner and Chair of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, John understands what it takes to foster a professional environment.

  • Improve protection of witnesses in cases of violent crime

  • Expedite trials for cases of violent crime

  • Prosecute crimes committed with firearms to the fullest extent

EFFICIENCY

Part of the job of the District Attorney is to maximize the efficiency of taxpayer dollars and office resources. Overcrowding at Silverdale Detention Center could be alleviated by speeding up cases and prosecuting violent crimes more efficiently, saving time and taxpayer dollars. 

  • Prosecute violent crimes more efficiently by bringing them to trial in a more timely manner

  • Update resources for attorneys

  • Alleviate overcrowding at Silverdale Detention Center by focusing on violent crime

FAIRNESS

Upholding the law means ensuring that everyone has the right to a fair and free trial. This includes conducting thorough investigations and holding those accountable who cause harm. I believe that no one should be above the law. 

  • Treat everyone fairly and equally when upholding the law

  • Ensuring fair and free trials for everyone that comes through the court system

ROE V. WADE

As your next District Attorney, it is my duty to make Hamilton County a safer place for everyone to live. I will never prosecute anyone for making medical decisions about their own body.
