"My family and I have been victims of armed robbery. I know how crime impacts our lives. I have instituted groundbreaking reforms reducing prison populations because we can be tough and smart on crime. We can fix the crime problem, our streets, and even get the trash picked up on time when we come together" - John Whitmire
