On Public Safety & Community Investment Issues

  • I support educational opportunities for all people; and hiring policies based on qualifications and work ethic, rather than denials based on the stigma of their past; and I believe ‘Ban the Box’ should be statewide on all job applications.
  • I support substance abuse and mental illness treatment be done by medical professionals, not police and deputies; and crisis interventions be done by highly trained and highly skilled people who de-escalate tensions and promote nonviolence among our community members.
  • I support creating housing units that are accessible to the people who live here, at prices they can afford, and with non-discrimination policies that reduce the negative impacts of mass incarceration. I will fight to make housing accessible to all people throughout Louisiana.

On Restorative Justice Issues

  • I support a separation between the criminal justice system and schools, and ending practices that resemble prisons.
  • I support the creation of a Trauma Assessment tool, to be utilized prior to sentencing; clearly informing Defendants about specific impacts a conviction will have on voting, employment, education, housing, 2nd Amendment, professional licensing, and potential future criminal allegations; and an end to excessive sentences that provide no meaningful opportunity for rehabilitation, hope, or second chances.
  • I support all people having a fair and reasonable opportunity to present their case for release to the parole board, who will review the totality of someone’s rehabilitation rather than re-sentence someone for the crime; and to have the “20/45” law apply to all Lifers, so people over 45 years old, with 20 years in prison, are eligible to see the parole board.
  • I support keeping people healthy through proper medical care, and keeping families connected through a fundamental right to human contact, elimination of price-gouging Louisiana’s families, and termination of predatory contracts.

On Equal Participation

  • I support the repeal of state law barring people under community supervision from voting, a clear and consistent voter registration process for all citizens, and I encourage all people to take part in the democratic process.
  • I support all government employees setting the highest example of inclusion and unity, and will not stand for policies or practices of different treatment due to the actual or perceived race, religion, birthplace, or self-identity of anyone in Louisiana.
  • I support strong and empowered community boards monitoring public servants within the police, the courts, and the jails; and I believe judges and prosecutors should be held accountable for their actions.

Where Cammie Maturin Stands

I support educational opportunities for all people; and hiring policies based on qualifications and work ethic, rather than denials based on the stigma of their past; and I believe ‘Ban the Box’ should be statewide on all job applications.
Agree

I believe a person’s work history and certifications should hold more weight in determining a company’s reason for hiring a person. I will work with organizations and companies to see how we can make jobs more accessible for everyone, regardless of their background.

I support substance abuse and mental illness treatment be done by medical professionals, not police and deputies; and crisis interventions be done by highly trained and highly skilled people who de-escalate tensions and promote nonviolence among our community members.
Agree

I believe that any individual who provided treatment should be highly trained to do so. Working closely with the DHH and other organizations, we should provide law enforcement the tools to assist our most vulnerable citizens versus putting them in jail.

I support creating housing units that are accessible to the people who live here, at prices they can afford, and with non-discrimination policies that reduce the negative impacts of mass incarceration. I will fight to make housing accessible to all people throughout Louisiana.
Agree

I believe that we can work with outside organizations to assist in the securing of funding to make a housing programs that provide reasonably priced housing for individuals in need. Discrimination is never okay!

I support a separation between the criminal justice system and schools, and ending practices that resemble prisons.
Agree

I believe that the school system should focus more on our children's education rather than their institutionalization. Officer presence in the school system may be necessary to ensure the safety of our children but should be also viewed as yet another positive role model for our children to trust!

I support the creation of a Trauma Assessment tool, to be utilized prior to sentencing; clearly informing Defendants about specific impacts a conviction will have on voting, employment, education, housing, 2nd Amendment, professional licensing, and potential future criminal allegations; and an end to excessive sentences that provide no meaningful opportunity for rehabilitation, hope, or second chances.
Agree

It is important to ensure that all defendants understand the above information. Over sentencing is not conducive to long term rehabilitation, hope, or second changes. However, it allows for the running of schools for crime on the taxpayer's dollar.

I support all people having a fair and reasonable opportunity to present their case for release to the parole board, who will review the totality of someone’s rehabilitation rather than re-sentence someone for the crime; and to have the “20/45” law apply to all Lifers, so people over 45 years old, with 20 years in prison, are eligible to see the parole board.
Agree

While there are some offenders who are not capable of rehabilitation, I firmly believe that all individuals should have a right to prove that they have paid their debt to society and have be rehabilitated. We must understand that this is simply consideration and not automatic release!

I support keeping people healthy through proper medical care, and keeping families connected through a fundamental right to human contact, elimination of price-gouging Louisiana’s families, and termination of predatory contracts.
Agree

When an individual is in the custody of the State, they are now the State's responsibility for the length of their sentence. The State should not be allowed to deny care to an individual in their custody. Furthermore, the Prison for Profit system is only entity benefiting from price-gauging needed contact methods with one's family.

I support the repeal of state law barring people under community supervision from voting, a clear and consistent voter registration process for all citizens, and I encourage all people to take part in the democratic process.
Agree

I believe that after an individual has paid their debt to society for their crimes and have been successfully released into society, that they should regain their right to have their voice heard through the democratic process.

I support all government employees setting the highest example of inclusion and unity, and will not stand for policies or practices of different treatment due to the actual or perceived race, religion, birthplace, or self-identity of anyone in Louisiana.
Agree

I believe that discrimination of any kind, especially in employment areas, is wrong and is not conducive to a positive society.

I support strong and empowered community boards monitoring public servants within the police, the courts, and the jails; and I believe judges and prosecutors should be held accountable for their actions.
Agree

I believe that implementing community boards for reasons discussed above should be studied to find the pros and cons. If it produces a better department with more accountability, it should be implemented. Furthermore, I believe that all individuals in the criminal justice system, regardless of position, should be held accountable for their actions, just as any other member of society would be.
