knows a lot about keeping our communities safe. She’s a former Executive Director of Crime Stoppers whose leadership resulted in the arrest of thousands of felons for unsolved murders, rapes, robberies and serious property crimes. She served as Houston’s first Anti-Gang Task Force Director and oversaw a 40 percent reduction in gang violence. And she’s a former Chief Felony Prosecutor who literally wrote the textbook on fighting criminal street gangs.
Kim understands that the best and fastest way to make our neighborhoods safer is to target the real criminals – violent predators and gang members who commit serious crimes. Instead, our current district attorney is wasting millions of our limited tax dollars jailing thousands of low-level drug offenders. Our jails are overcrowded, and drive-by shootings, identity theft and burglaries are on the rise.
Kim will modernize the DA’s office, using technology and common sense to target crime cartels and local gangs responsible for increasing gang-related murders, human trafficking and the child sex trade, identity theft and burglaries of cars and homes — the real criminals who prey on us. She will reform our grand jury system and make sure drug forfeiture funds are used effectively against violent criminals, white-collar thieves, environmental polluters, and those who would betray the public trust through corruption and oppression.
Join Kim’s campaign to make Harris County safer today. Vote for Kim in the Democratic primary on March 4. Early voting starts February 18.
