My name is Abe George. For the last 8 years, I served this city as an Assistant District Attorney at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. As a native son of Brooklyn, I decided to leave that job in July of 2012 because I could no longer stand by and watch the current Brooklyn District Attorney continue to place his own political interests above fighting crime and securing justice on behalf of the people of Brooklyn.
After more than two decades of the same stagnant leadership, it is time for a change. I have a vision to reinvigorate and modernize the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, to enable the office to effectively fight crime in the 21st century. As Brooklyn District Attorney, I will seek to restore the faith of Brooklyn’s citizens that their District Attorney’s sole focus is to pursue justice and bring down crime, and not to play politics with people’s lives.
