Fox has a proven track record

To the editor:

Tough on crime and criminals with a passion for keeping us safe and helping victims is one way to describe Amira Fox, chief assistant state attorney for Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. Another way to describe Amira Fox would be as the most qualified person with a proven track record of results to be the next State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit.

Eighty-eight percent is the current conviction rate for the State Attorney's office in Lee County. Most would agree that with the lowest crime rate in the state of Florida and this incredible conviction rate the State Attorney's office is doing a great job. But Amira Fox only strives for better results to keep criminals off the street and protect the citizens of her jurisdiction. She does this by throwing the proverbial book at violent criminals and never shying away from the tough cases, having prosecuted many death penalty cases. She also employs innovative ways to catch violent criminals, like partnering with law enforcement and using RICO to end the string of terror of the Lake Boys gang.

Amira has led the State Attorney's office to solve tough issues. The addiction, mental health and Veterans courts tout many stories of success by ripping off the Band-aids of revolving-door incarceration, actually providing resources and options for non-violent offenders to get their lives back on track. I have a dear friend that went through Veterans court and claims it saved their life, and their record. This person has achieved great success in life as a result of these programs.

Amira Fox has a proven track record and experience to do this job. She is also the most honest, caring, ethical, no-nonsense, hard working person and the citizens of the 20th Judicial Circuit would be lucky to have her lead us into the next decade.
