SAN BERNARDINO >> Sitting in his office beside an American flag, District Attorney Michael A. Ramos announced Wednesday his intention to run for re-election next year.
Ramos, who has held office since 2003, said he’s received several opportunities to run for other political offices, but has turned them down in order to continue as San Bernardino County district attorney.
“It’s been an honor to serve this county as dstrict attorney,” Ramos said. “There are still things I want to accomplish and finish what we’ve started in many areas of this office.”
COLUMN: Gov. Brown made right call on Norco prison: Michael Ramos
I support the recent decision by Gov. Brown to keep the Norco prison open. As we all continue to deal with aftermath of prison reform, this is a good move after the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent direction to release more prisoners.
As chairman of the National District Attorneys Association’s Committee on Corrections and Prison Re-entry, I can say that this is an issue being felt across the country. In fact, just last month, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder pushed the issue of sentencing and prison overcrowding.
