Commonwealth’s Attorney for Albemarle County
City & county prosecutors (called Commonwealth’s Attorneys in VA) are some of the most powerful elected officials in the U.S. because they have real impact on people’s lives. They have wide discretion in choosing whether to encourage discriminatory policing, use money bail even for minor crimes, “pile on” charges to intimidate people into pleading guilty, force longer prison sentences, and more.
Robert Tracci won his last race for Commonwealth’s Attorney by only about 500 votes.
