I will be voting for Todd Williams for district attorney in the May 6 Democratic Primary.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 reads, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot.” Indeed, it is time for change. It is time for us to groom a new leader who is accountable to the community – someone who is receptive to the needs of the underdog and who will work to restore the many that have been overlooked and trampled upon.
With Todd Williams, we have an opportunity for new leadership in our criminal justice system. We have an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and elect an experienced attorney who has served as a public defender, representing the least of us.
Todd Williams is a parent, a church goer, and a volunteer. I understand that he currently serves on the board of Green Opportunities, which helps youth and adults living in poverty get and keep jobs that support their families and improve community and environmental health.
Even though I am skeptical and weary of political divisiveness, those leaders who capitalize off the vote of the minority only to evacuate promises and enslave our sons mercilessly, my resolve remains in the spirit of change. Forward march!
We fall and rise together as a community. And with the right amount of support and subjection to justice, I trust that Todd Williams will be the most suitable to serve us as new district attorney.
