Former Orange and Osceola State Attorney Aramis Ayala seeks to be Florida Attorney General

Q: What qualities do you possess that qualifies you to be the attorney general and top law enforcement officer of the State of Florida? In other words, what do you bring to the job? 

A: I’m proven. I took on the status quo to build safer, healthier communities. As Florida’s first Black State Attorney I created innovative pre-trial diversion programs, police accountability reforms and initiatives to support victims of domestic violence. My experience, ethics and commitment to justice are second to none. I have always fought for justice.
