What qualifies you as the best candidate for this office?

What are the most pressing issues facing the public that you plan to address?

What will be your top priority if you are elected and how will you achieve that goal?

I am running to continue being the District Attorney General of Davidson County because I am committed to continuing the work we have started in changing the culture of the criminal justice system so that we keep our city safe and so that justice is administered in a fair manner. I am running because I believe the criminal justice system does not have to tear communities apart… in fact, it can bring communities together and work to make our city a safer and fairer place. I know the difference between a bad person and a good kid in trouble. I believe in second chances and I believe in opportunities and support for people who are struggling with addiction and those who suffer from mental health issues.
My office has focused on vigorously prosecuting violent crime while also focused on changing the culture of the criminal justice system in Nashville in how we address nonviolent offenses and offenders.

My office will continue to make prosecuting violent crime our top priority. We have over a 95 percent conviction and success rate for prosecuting and locking up those who commit violent crimes such as murder, rape, and aggravated robbery.

The District Attorney’s office also remains committed to providing support to victims of crime.
My top priority will be to use the resources of the District attorney's office to fight violent crime and continue to offer alternatives to incarceration for non-violent offenders who suffer from mental health, addiction, and poverty when jail is not the answer. We cannot choose between justice and fairness. We must boldly demand both.
