State at­tor­ney will run for re­elec­tion

- — An­thony Man

Broward State At­tor­ney Mike Satz said Sun­day that he still has more work to do, and his job as the county’s top pros­e­cu­tor con­stantly presents new chal­lenges, so he’s run­ning next year for an 11th term. Satz, 72, was first elected in 1976. “Yes, I am [run­ning],” he said in a brief in­ter­view dur­ing a break at a lun­cheon of po­lit­i­cal movers and shak­ers held by the Deer­field Beach Demo­cratic Club.

“There’s al­ways more” to do, he said. “It’s a con­stant change from when I was first elected. There are a lot of things to do. ”

He said there are dif­fer­ent pri­or­i­ties to­day, with more em­pha­sis on re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and a new fo­cus on is­sues such as hu­man traf­fick­ing. Re­cently he’s been in­volved in an ef­fort con­vened by U.S. Reps. Al­cee Hast­ings, D-Del­ray Beach, and Deb­bie Wasser­man Schultz, DWe­ston, and in­volv­ing Sher­iff Scott Is­rael, that at­tempts to in­crease trust be­tween lo­cal po­lice agen­cies and mi­nor­ity com­mu­ni­ties.

In 2012, he won 62 per­cent of the vote in the Demo­cratic pri­mary and won the gen­eral elec­tion with 69 per­cent of the vote.
