Maricopa County Attorney, AZ
Help elect Julie
Julia is running for Maricopa County Attorney because she is a firm believer that if the County Attorney office stops wasting resources on non-violent, low-level cases where individuals deserve alternatives to jail time the system could effectively reduce violent crime in Maricopa County and hold public officials accountable for corruption.
Julia wants to tackle the criminals who prey on women, children, and the elderly. She believes that the County Attorney’s office should be smart with reforms so as to create real sentencing reform, end cash bail, have bond reforms, and eliminate private prisons. Julia would make the office fair for the residents of Maricopa County by creating effective diversion programs for young adults and children, veterans with mental health issues, and end prosecution of low-level marijuana offenses
Julia also wants to create a special prosecutorial team that will take on political corruption as it relates to legislative deals, the revolving door between legislators and lobbyists and backroom deals that hurt taxpayers and erode their faith in the political system.
Julia also wants to see an office where prosecutors, staff, and interns are free from the current culture of sexual harassment and intimidation, where there is oversight into the current method of prosecution to work to eliminate prosecutorial bias.
