Stanley Alexander qualifies to run for Hinds County District Attorney
Hinds County native and Chief prosecutor for the Mississippi Attorney General’s office has formally qualified for Hinds County District Attorney.
A career prosecutor, Alexander has spent his career committed to the community and has been an advocate for victims of crime and public integrity. He has spent the last seven years prosecuting public corruption and violent crimes.
“I developed a passion to serve early on in life. I grew up in Hinds County and watched people in this community live to the highest values. I have tried to live my life so that I will maintain those values. I served as a Hinds County Senior Assistant District Attorney and Director for the Division of Public Integrity, and am determined to give a voice to the voiceless. It’s always been my goal to be a strong advocate for justice and to hold criminals accountable for their actions.,” said Alexander.
“Hinds County made me who I am. I grew up here, and my worldview was shaped by the values and education I received here. My wife and I have spent the majority of our lives here. Hinds County is home. However, the community that nurtured and invested in me and many others now needs us to nurture and invest in it.
We need leadership that will fight for Hinds County. We need a strong voice in the District Attorney’s office who understands crime can not and will not be a norm in Hinds County anymore. We will work with all law enforcement agencies to get criminals off of the streets. We will make prosecution of violent offenders a priority. The Hinds County Detention Center will no longer be used as a long term correctional facility but as a temporary holding facility as it was intended. I’m ready to improve the lives of the people here, one neighborhood at a time.”
