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 past mistakes. I support 'banning the box’ on statewide job applications. As a community leader, I will be a role model in this effort, encourage others to do the same, and protect the right to work for all people in Louisiana.
  • I support substance abuse and mental health treatment conducted by medical professionals, not police and deputies. I support crisis intervention by highly trained and skilled individuals who work to de-escalate tension and promote nonviolence among our communities. As a member of the judiciary, I will advance and protect a public health approach to resolving issues that arise from these challenges.
  • I support local and state efforts to create housing units that are accessible and affordable for all people, with non-discrimination policies that reduce the negative impacts of mass incarceration. I will encourage fellow community leaders to make housing available to all people in Louisiana, and will not support evictions solely due to a conviction or arrest.

On Restorative Justice Issues

  • I support a separation between the criminal justice system and schools. I will work to end punitive school environments that resemble prisons. As a judge, I will do whatever it takes to shift back addressing misbehavior to schools, without criminal justice system involvement.
  • I support the creation of a trauma assessment tool that would be used prior to sentencing. I will work to ensure that people charged with crimes are informed of all collateral consequences that accompany a conviction--voting, employment, housing, education, professional licensing, potential future criminal allegations. Further, I support an end to excessively long and punitive sentences that provide no meaningful opportunity for rehabilitation, hope, or second chances.
  • I support the assumption of innocence until proven guilty, an end to incarceration based on people’s ability to afford freedom, and an expedited review of individuals who are currently detained in the jail.
  • I will publicly post the names of all people who endorse me or fund my campaign, as well as the entities in which they have a financial or professional interest, on my campaign or judicial website. I will recuse myself if any of these supporters, or their immediate family members, are scheduled to appear in my courtroom. This includes other elected officials.

I believe judges and prosecutors should be held accountable for their actions. I support judicial accountability in open and transparent courtrooms.
