Rollins wins race for Suffolk County DA race


Statement from the Rollins Campaign, September 4, 2018 10 p.m. 

BOSTON – Today Rachael Rollins won the election for Suffolk County District Attorney. Rollins will be the first female-candidate of color to hold the position in the history of the Commonwealth. 

Rollins stated, “I am honored and humbled.  But I also need to say – for all of us – that this is earned. As a 47-year old Black Woman, I have earned this. We have earned this.  This is the time for us to claim our power and make good on our promises to make true criminal justice reform for the people in Suffolk County.  Reform that is progressive – that decriminalizes poverty, substance use disorder, and mental illness.  This is the time to create a system that puts fairness and equity first – as a model for the Commonwealth and the nation.”
