A Message from Flynn Broady
Protecting our community from crime requires more than locking up criminals. We cannot punish our way out of our crime problems. We must be committed to preventing crime by breaking the cycle of crime for youthful, first-time, mentally-ill, and drug-addicted offenders.
As District Attorney, I will work to expand and focus on accountability courts, diversion programs, and pretrial programs that offer offenders alternatives to prison. My office will seek to identify and resolve the issues of substance abuse, domestic violence, and mental illness that plague our community.
With help from local school boards and concerned parents and citizens, we will work to reach inexperienced, naive youth who are vulnerable to gang membership. We will be visible in our schools, educating and mentoring our youth, making our community safer for everyone.
I will ensure that my office vigorously prosecutes violent and habitual felons who cannot be reached by other means. Then we will work to see that just sentences are imposed. We will protect the innocent. We will see that justice is done.
We will uphold the Constitutional and statutory rights of every person in our county irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic status.
My office will maintain the highest level of honesty, integrity, and transparency. We will be models of ethical and professional conduct. As public servants, we will be committed to diversity, hard work, and accountability. We will be careful stewards of taxpayers’ resources.
We will strive to be the best District Attorney office possible and support our community’s values, safety, and quality of life. In 2020, help me bring all these promises home to Cobb County by voting for me, Flynn Broady, for District Attorney.
