MANHATTAN - Multiple mentions of police reforms and 50-a by candidates during the NY1 debate miss one thing: Dan Quart was the sponsor and champion of almost all the police reforms discussed.
Earlier this evening, Diana Florence pressed Alvin Bragg on police reform, saying, “you didn’t do any of these reforms.” Quart, however, is the only candidate who actually played a key role passing all the reforms she mentioned. Quart led the charge to repeal 50-a, the worst police secrecy law in the country, and supported ending qualified immunity.
Quart is ready on day one to hold the police accountable for misconduct and abuses. He’s been doing it for ten years in the legislature and will meet the moment that Manhattanites demand as District Attorney.
