Ricardo ArroyoCandidate for District Attorney, Suffolk County, MA
As a Boston City Councilor, Ricardo fights every day for those who are too often ignored. He led the fights to declare Racism a Public Health Crisis in Boston and to reallocate public safety dollars to programming for mental health, rehabilitation, and violence prevention. Ricardo understands that protecting civil liberties and promoting public safety are not mutually exclusive but complimentary. He has sponsored and passed the Surveillance Oversight Ordinance, the Facial Recognition Ban, and the Office for Police Accountability and Transparency.
Now Ricardo is running for Suffolk County District Attorney because he wants to build a justice system that protects the safety and dignity of all people. He is committed to a system that reduces racial and class disparities and holds people accountable while offering healing and restoration for victims.
