As an attorney, I’ve sworn to uphold the Pennsylvania Constitution, and that means delivering equal justice under the law. Too often, marginalized groups and individuals are not given their fair day in court within our community.
Once elected to office, I will work with the Lehigh County Court Administration, the District Attorney’s office, and the Public Defender’s office to make sure that justice is administered fairly in Lehigh County. Everyone deserves to have fair access to the numerous rights and programs available to members of our Lehigh County community.
County policies on bail, attorney access, custody help, and protection from abuse orders all need to be examined to make sure we are protecting the most vulnerable in our County from harm and making sure innocent people are not incarcerated simply because they have low income. I would work with the court system to reduce or eliminate cash bail for non-violent offenses where there is no threat to the community.
