If you really want to make your vote count this year, please get to know your candidates. When it comes to this community we really need to make educated decisions to ensure our interests are protected.

Tori Verber Salazar is the right choice for district attorney of San Joaquin County. As I see it, when choosing a candidate you have to look at three things: commitment to the community, their work ethic, and their professionalism and desire to make a difference. Tori Verber Salazar has prevailed in all three categories.

Community: Tori Verber Salazar has served on many nonprofit boards and organizations to create change in our community. She has created programs designed to detour kids from becoming involved in gangs and cyberbullying, and has worked to empower young people to be all they can be. Tori is leading the way in organizing faith-based groups and nonprofits along with law enforcement to stop one of the cruelest crimes — human trafficking. She has led the way in bringing this critical issue to the forefront, and will work relentlessly to stop those who sell our children into sexual slavery.

Ethics: The chief legal officer of San Joaquin County must adhere to the law and implement it truthfully, with transparency and integrity. Tori has shown time and time again she will adhere to the highest ethics.

Professionalism: Tori has always worked hard to ensure victims of violent crime, those who have been murdered and no longer have a voice be given one. Through her tough-as-nails prosecution and her dedication and professionalism she has brought justice to those who no longer could be heard.

Tori is the only candidate to lead the way in creating a safer community and has done so for the past 25 years as a member of the District Attorney’s Office. She has served with professionalism, integrity and a desire to make a difference. She deserves our support.
