Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair. So we don’t have time to waste. Tragic events, both near and far, have severely torn the bonds of trust between law enforcement and the public we serve.
In Travis County we have the obligation to lead the debate and engage more voices in changing the way we think about law enforcement and our jails. It’s time for honesty and courage. It’s time to address the systemic issues head-on, including racial justice, lack of opportunities for youth, an underfunded and overloaded mental health system, immigrant rights and the public safety imperative of keeping families together. I’m committed to this debate and TO LEADING THE WAY for criminal justice reform. Join me, and together we’ll show what Travis County stands for.
