WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT REFERENDUM A?
Voting for Referendum A says we want Home Rule, and
electing our own District Attorney would be a major step in achieving Home
Rule. We deserve an elected District Attorney who is accountable only to
us. An elected District Attorney would make DC a better place to live by
focusing more attention on neglected areas such as quality-of-life crimes,
protecting consumers and public integrity issues. An elected District
Attorney would be more efficient because one office would prosecute all
