What else do you want readers to know?
I am a 17-year prosecutor whose guiding principle has always been that victims come first. However, I have grown frustrated that victims' rights have been gutted by political leaders in the name of reform and that law enforcement isn't being supported for all they do keeping us safe. I am afraid that Ventura County is going to start looking like Los Angeles County, and I don't want to see that happen. These qualities are why I have been endorsed by every peace officers' association in Ventura County.
