NEW YORK_____Queens District Attorney candidate Mina Malik took command of tonight’s debate stage and stood out over other candidates as the most experienced, qualified, and ready candidate to lead the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
“Tonight Mina demonstrated to voters that not only is she the most qualified candidate, but she also has the requisite experience and relevant policy proposals to create meaningful change in the Queens District Attorney’s Office,” said Lupe Todd-Medina, Director of Communications. “Mina’s campaign is about the 2.4 million residents of Queens that deserve a District Attorney who doesn’t just talk about reform but has actually implemented reform. Experience matters. Change in Queens cannot wait for someone to learn on the job.”
Mina Malik is an attorney and Harvard Law School professor with over two decades of criminal justice and reform experience. Most recently, Mina served as Deputy to the first Haitian-born Attorney General in the District of Columbia, and previously served as Executive Director of the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board, and as Special Counsel to Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson.
As Special Counsel, Mina played an instrumental role in the creation of Brooklyn’s Conviction Review Unit and its first-in-the-nation marijuana decriminalization policy. Mina also served for fifteen years as an assistant district attorney and special victims prosecutor in the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
Her campaign’s grassroots strategy includes engaging Queens voters of all backgrounds, identities, and walks of life to create a more fair, transparent, and accountable District Attorney’s office
