Perry Paylor is an experienced business and community leader who understands how economic development, environmental changes, and poverty impact crime. He wants to implement a restorative justice approach to repair harm and restore community trust in the criminal justice system. He believes, and I agree, that we owe it to our community to deliver an employable workforce, which means we cannot allow youthful offenders to be bogged down with criminal records for low-level offenses that occurred as adolescents and young adults.
In his current role as a Deputy State’s Attorney, Perry works to provide the opportunity for low-level offenders to make amends with the community and self-improve through a strict accountability program that includes community service, life skills development, workforce training, and job placement. This allows residents who have paid their debts to society to have a fair chance at employment.
Montgomery County needs a leader like Perry Paylor and I’m proud to endorse him as the next Montgomery County State’s Attorney.
