• I will advocate for providing adequate resources to run the Circuit Court of Cook County, the largest court system in the nation, through pretrial services, probation services, court interpreters, mortgage foreclosure remedies, and educational programs.

 

• I will advocate for County Lawyers in the State’s Attorney Office, the Public Defender’s Office and the Public Guardian’s Office to have access to the full range of modern resources to better equip them to properly do their jobs.

 

• I will fight for a fair and sensible criminal justice system that provides a fiscally sound approach to maintaining public safety. I believe that implementing effective rehabilitative services and programs for incarcerated offenders as well as those on parole, will reduce the population of our jail while still protecting our community from its worst criminals.
