We will be petitioning for Richard Aborn for Manhattan District Attorney. To do this, you must be a registered Democrat living in Manhattan
From the campaign about Richard Aborn:
Richard is a criminal justice reformer with a long history of coming up with big ideas and getting them done. He prosecuted violent crime under Morgenthau, investigated police abuses during the Diallo era, and fought successfully to expand DNA testing. He took on the NRA twice ? to restrict felons? access to handguns (the Brady Bill) and to ban assault weapons ? and won. As the managing partner of a nationally recognized law firm, he knows what it takes to run an operation like the DA?s office.
Richard?s vision for a progressive and effective District Attorney?s office that constantly seeks ways to prevent crimes before they happen has won the support of 17 elected officials across Manhattan ? West Side, East Side, uptown, downtown, black, white, Hispanic, straight, gay ? law enforcement professionals like former Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, the Legal Aid Attorneys, and the Working Families Party.
