I am Linda Champion, and I am a tireless advocate for the people of Suffolk County. I embrace the opportunity to put my accumulated professional skills and life skills to work as Suffolk County’s District Attorney. I have made it my life’s mission to help people live better, feel safer, and grow stronger – as individuals and as a community. I am a firm believer that through empathy, hard work, and patience, one person can change the life of another person in lasting, positive ways. If everyone adopts this belief, a community flourishes. What greater goal could one have but to seek to help others? And it is in this spirit that I am seeking to serve all of Suffolk County.
