Well, sadly Alison didn’t win, but she made a great showing for an independent candidate with 36% of the vote. A wonderful accomplishment against a republican candidate. Alison sincerely thanks all who helped with her campaign and all those who voted for her.
Meet Alison Boggs, your independent candidate for Union County Prosecutor
In these days of rising property taxes, budget shortfalls, out-of-touch career politicians and worst of all, political campaigns (eek!) you may think that there’s not much you can do to restore a sense of ownership and common sense to our government. Take a stand against politics as usual and wasteful spending by voting for Alison Boggs. She is willing to sacrifice her successful, private law practice in order to return to public service to set things right in the Union County’s Prosecutor’s Office. Count on Alison to:
Do the right thing
- Restore integrity to the prosector’s office by instituting a Grand Jury review before taking a case to trail
- Refuse to prosecute felonies when a misdemeanor is a better fit
- Institute a diversion program where appropriate to punish non-violent, first-time offenders without prison—reserving prison (and it’s associated costs to the taxpayers) for repeat and dangerous criminals.
- Avoid publicity by keeping confidential investigations and court proceedings confidential
Owe no one
- By having no endorsements, Alison doesn’t owe any favors to any special interest group
- By being independent, Alison doesn’t answer to any political party
Be fiscally conservative
- Alison will expect her staff to work full-time exclusively for the county in order to earn their full-time salaries
- Alison is sensitive to the demands on the taxpayer and will adjust her budget in line with the economy—even when it means forgoing raises for herself or her staff
- Alison will make herself and her staff available to the townships to provide legal counsel to alleviate the need for the townships to seek funding for outside legal help
