I support Ron Batliner for Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney.
I have had the opportunity to observe Ron Batliner mentoring less experienced prosecutors, and appreciate the fact that he has always emphasized fairness in his approach to seeking justice. I have known Ron to go to the wall in prosecuting a case; and I have known him to dismiss cases that did not deserve to be prosecuted. Ron Batliner can be counted on to “do the right thing.”
Please vote for Ron Batliner in the Norfolk VA primary election on June 13th: ethics and experience are important.
You know what else? We could call him Batman. Our prosecutor could be Batman 🙂
I’m kidding – but I have to tell you I’ve been in the prosecution business for decades. All too often, prosecutors are lazy pushovers or government hacks who only live to put people in prison. Ron Batliner is neither of those things. He is fair minded and truly seeks justice. He represents victims of crime without losing sight of the fact that we also have to fight the causes of crime, and that some defendants should not be prosecuted. That is a rarity.
