It's Time for change in charlottesville.
Ray Szwabowski is a husband, father, and former public defender in Charlottesville, Virginia. He’s running in the Democratic primary to work for Charlottesville as our community’s top public safety official.
As a public defender, Ray worked for indigent defendants to help them get a fair day in court. But the deck was often stacked against Ray’s clients, leaving justice out of reach. That’s why he sees the role of Charlottesville’s prosecutor as something bigger — an advocate for more just policy in Richmond and real engagement in Charlottesville’s most overpoliced communities.
