We strongly support District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg and strongly oppose her removal from office.
Rosemary Lehmberg has had an extraordinary 36-year career as a Travis County prosecutor, an Assistant District Attorney, and since 2009, as District Attorney. Unquestionably she has developed and maintained one of the best district attorney’s offices in the United States. She served as chief prosecutor in Judge Tom Blackwell’s 167th District Court. She also served as chief of other major divisions in the District Attorney’s office—including the Career Criminal Division, the Major Crimes Division, and the Public Integrity Division. She founded the Travis County Children’s Advocacy Center, and for her work on behalf of child abuse victims, she was named Best Lawyer for Children’s Issues. Under her leadership the Public Integrity Unit has successfully prosecuted both Democrats and Republicans who have violated the public trust.
We want to have 1,000 signatures to support Rosemary and her years of service to Travis County.
Rosemary has been sufficiently punished, voluntarily accepting the harshest punishment ever given for a first time DWI offense. She has served Travis County for over 36 years, and we must let her serve the remainder of her term.
