Gmdma Black Community Leadership Announce Endorsement In District Attorneys Race The Greater Metro Denver Ministerial Alliance announced their endorsement of Michael Carrigan in the upcoming Denver District Attorney election. GMDMA President Del Phillips said After several interviews with all District Attorney candidates a major community forum at Shorter Baptist Church numerous meetings and conversations among our membership we have come to a consensus on the candidate we think will be open fair equitable in the application of the law and will hold all in the criminal justice system accountable. That candidate is Michael Carrigan. The Alliances endorsement process was thorough and detailed. I know they took this decision very seriously and Im honored that they chose to endorse our campaign said Michael Carrigan. Our vision for real lasting criminal justice reform was heard loud and clear by members of the Alliance and I am proud to have their support. GMDMA Contends Across the nation the public and community safety are major concerns and Denver is no exception. GMDMA has been a vocal advocate confronting public safety issues and problems in the Denver judi- cial system. We have a responsibility to our congregations and community to verbalize our concerns on police shootings suspicious deaths in Denver city jails and law enforcement misconduct all of which contribute to a lack of confidence in our law enforcement and justice system. GMDMA Declaration This D.A.s race is critical and GMDMA believes it is the most important local election in the Denver election cycle for this year. The outcome of this race will have significant impact in re-establishing trust and relationship between the District Attorneys office and our community. Our membership will be active throughout this race to encourage registered votes in our churches and community to vote and to get those not registered to register and vote. The Denver D.A.s race is an opportunity for the faith community to educate and get others involved to take action using their right to vote to bring change to a justice system that has been unjust. The GMDMA has been in existence for 75 years in the Denver Metro community has a membership of 50 pastors serving more than 25000 citizens in Denver and Aurora. For information on the endorsement or the Greater Metro Denver Ministerial Alliance contact Del Phillips at 303 355-0297.
