MEET KIM GARDNER.
“Our City and our citizens have suffered through a difficult period of increasing homicides and violent crime. Unfortunately, there are a large number of our residents who have a significant lack of trust in our criminal justice system. This has considerably contributed to the vast number of homicides and other violent crimes that are unsolved. Our City deserves a criminal justice system that is fair and just for all, while relentlessly pursuing justice against those who decide to prey on our citizens.”
“For our city to achieve its promise, it is incumbent upon all that have been entrusted with the public’s trust to lead our great city. Our current status quo approach to prosecuting and preventing violent crime is unacceptable. As your next Circuit Attorney, my office will operate through transparency to enhance community trust, a critical ingredient to make our city safer. Working together, we can and face our challenges head on to make our neighborhoods and community a vibrant place to live, work, learn, and play.”
