Why you should support Brandon Birmingham

How do we make Dallas County a safer place to live? 
Innovation and Integrity.

A few years ago, when I asked for your vote, I told you my primary goal was to make Dallas County a safer place to live. Since then, we have taken a number of steps toward making this goal a reality.

Before I was elected, there was no such thing as the AIM Program. Now, non-violent 18-24 year-olds have an opportunity to make amends for a youthful mistake without being saddled with a felony conviction, felony probation, or even being on deferred probation. Once they prove they can be sober, continue their education, work steadily, and remain crime free, their cases are dismissed and immediately expunged. Why give these non-violent offenders a second chance? So that these young folks can become untethered from the youthful mistakes of the past, and grow into productive members of our society.

Domestic Violence is a silent epidemic in Dallas County. Since last year, I have also presided over the High Risk Domestic Violence Court with the goal of ending the relentless cycle of violence. Here, along with a team of outstanding professionals, we treat the abuser and keep safe the abused.  Perhaps, with enough time and resources, this epidemic will be no more.

A few months ago, I was selected by my judicial colleagues to be the Presiding Judge of all of the Criminal District Judges in Dallas County. We are taking on one of the most fundamental and important challenges in the criminal justice system: bail reform. We are in the midst of setting up an entire new system, one that bases judicial determinations of bail on risk-not resources. The beginning of this systemic change has begun, and although there is much work left, I am committed to finishing the job. 

I am humbly asking for your donations to help me carry this momentum forward to the next term. There are so many innovative and unique things happening in my Court, and I’d like to continue the work for as long as you need. 

This bench does not belong to me. It belongs to the people. 

Join me in my quest to make Dallas County a safer place to live.  Help me spread the word – donate today.

Together we can make this goal a reality.
