New DA says she will keep "moving forward with implementing progressive reforms.”

When I speak progressive supporters in private, they generally believe that everyone needs to just suck it up and give these progressive reforms more time.

"As District Attorney, I will do everything in my power to restore accountability and consequences to San Francisco’s criminal justice system while also moving forward with implementing progressive reforms.”

“I am proud that today we swore in Brooke Jenkins as San Francisco’s new District Attorney,” said Mayor Breed. “I hear from residents every day that they are frustrated with the state of accountability in our city and have real concerns about feeling safe, but they also don’t want us to move back on the progress we have made reforming our criminal justice system.
