State attorney will run for reelection
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.
