LA Deputy DA Jon Hatami announced this intention to run for LA County District Attorney to finally oust George Gascon.
Mr. Hatami talked to John & Ken today about his announcement.
Hatami is running on a vigorous plan to restore public safety, bring transparency back to the People’s Office, hold wrong-doers accountable, and make real-meaningful reforms.
“The passion I bring in my cases when I fight for justice for children is the passion I will bring to the entire county of Los Angeles. Not only will I fight for my kids. I will fight for yours. I’m not a traditional “law and order” prosecutor who has spent his entire life as a Deputy District Attorney. I have real life and lived experiences with trauma and hardships. I am a father, husband, a 40+ year member of this community, child abuse survivor and “compassionate prosecutor” who believes in justice for all. We must make the right decisions for the right reasons, with transparency and accountability, for each individual case. Los Angeles deserves that. We all do.” Hatami said.
