Donovan will be ‘smart on crime’
On Aug. 28, please vote for TJ Donovan for attorney general. TJ’s energy, experience, dedication and willingness to work hard will make him an excellent attorney general.
TJ has not shied away from taking a position on the tough issues. He has brought forward new ideas, solutions and well-defined goals for the office of attorney general.
TJ has the courage to challenge the status quo on how we are policing and prosecuting individuals with addictions and mental health disabilities. Combating Vermont’s growing prescription drug abuse and opiate abuse problem has been at the forefront of his campaign. TJ has the vision and commitment to combat the epidemic of drug abuse.
TJ has a plan for reorganizing and redistributing the resources at the attorney general’s office to not only combat drug abuse but to also combat elder abuse. When elected, TJ will increase the protection of our aging population and aggressively prosecute those who take advantage of seniors.
During his campaign, TJ has made the effort to reach out to the citizens of Barre. TJ is listening to the concerns of the citizens. He will be a voice and an ally in helping to bring central Vermont, and especially Barre, forward with his safe communities plan by being, as he has said, “smart on crime.”
As Chittenden County’s state’s attorney, TJ started the nationally recognized Rapid Intervention Community Court Project, which addresses the root cause of criminal behavior by working with local community service organizations.
I encourage all people, regardless of party affiliation, to vote for TJ Donovan at the Democratic primary on Aug. 28. To find out more about TJ, please go to his website at Donovan2012.com or his Facebook page.
