Dear Friends and Family,
I am very proud to not only be endorsing Attorney Linda Champion for Suffolk County District Attorney, but also to be serving as the Chair of her campaign.
I have worked alongside Linda over the past few years at Chung Changing Lives to raise money for children in need. Like me, Linda has made giving back a huge part of her life. She understands the need to give back to the community, helps families and children in need, and now she will have the ability to return to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office and apply her legal, management and advocacy skills to help victims of crime and the residents.
Today, we need to change how we approach the criminal justice system. I have run my business with the philosophy that treating people—all people—with respect was, and still is, important. A defendant before the court on a petty victimless crime, a juvenile who has taken a wrong turn, or the victim who suffers in silence afraid of seeking help for fear of deportation will have a District Attorney who will give each person access to justice that is fair and transparent.
As District Attorney, Linda will work to prosecute violent offenders. She will also implement diversion and alternative paths to rehabilitation where appropriate. The defendants struggling with addiction will find a District Attorney who will collaborate with their defense. The victims of violent crimes will find a zealous advocate, safety and resources through her office. Juveniles of non-violent offenses will find a pathway to having a second chance because Linda understands non-violent youthful offenders are not defined by their mistakes and are deserving of our support. I’m confident that after meeting her, working with her and putting her in office you will agree that she knows every life matters and we all have the ability to make a difference in the lives of others.
Today, I ask that you get involved by volunteering your time and more importantly by making a contribution. Change will not come without your support and your VOTE for Champion for District Attorney.
We look forward to working with you on the campaign trail to make Linda the next District Attorney for Suffolk County.
