LACDP Chair Mark J Gonzalez releases statement on the election of 
George Gascón for Los Angeles District Attorney  



LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CA -- 
Following the election of George Gascón for Los Angeles District Attorney and DA Jackie Lacey conceding the race,  Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark J Gonzalez released the following statement:

"Justice was always on the ballot, and in this election Angelenos resoundingly chose a culture of change and accountability over the status quo. The election of George Gascón as our next Los Angeles District Attorney ushers in a new era of prosecution - one centered on the protecting citizens and not protecting those who abuse their power and authority. Los Angeles Democrats were proud to endorse George Gascón from day one, and we’re committed to ensuring that he has the support he needs to make necessary changes to our justice system. I  want to thank outgoing DA Jackie Lacey for her years of service. Change is coming to America, and now change is coming to our justice system in Los Angeles."
