“Voters elected me with a promise to continue and improve criminal justice reform and police accountability in this community while focusing on the cases that cause serious harm to those living in the 9th District. I am delighted to inherit employees who are so committed to these goals, ”Worrell wrote. “Unfortunately, there were a small number of people we had to lay off in order to find someone who was top-down with our priorities. We appreciate your service to this office and wish you all the best in your future endeavors. “
The local public prosecutor’s office employs around 400 people. Interviews will be held to replace the five employees who will be made redundant effective January 5th.
