Want to see Asheville work to end cash bail and mass incarceration? Do you want a crackdown on police and prosecutorial corruption, while also restoring trust throughout the courts, law enforcement, and the community?
So does Ben Scales, your progressive candidate running for District Attorney in Buncombe County. Join us in our fight to achieve real justice for victims and others caught up in the criminal justice system as we get back to focusing on serious crime.
Bring your questions, comments, and concerns directly to Ben on Thursday - because he cares about standing up for the little guy against forces of oppression. We'll be posted up at the Pennycup in Downtown Asheville from 12-2pm. Enjoy a cup of coffee on us!
Learn about this important upcoming race for District Attorney, a position that could accomplish meaningful reform to a broken system with the right person elected into office. Early Voting is from April 19-May 5, with the Primary Election on May 8th. [There are only two candidates running, who are both Democrats - the winner on May 8th will run unopposed for the General Election in November!]
We can change the conversation about criminal justice and see how this position can heal and empower the community as quickly as May 8th. Progressive DA's are being elected into office around the country, and people are seeing rapid changes from this county-level position that closely affects our daily lives.
Let's bring that home to Buncombe County and lead by example in Western North Carolina.
