New York City’s Law Department doesn’t just represent the City, it also fights for the values of fairness and justice that New Yorkers hold dear. Jim Johnson has spent his life on the front lines of that fight. Honored to have him join us as the new Corporation Counsel.
Jim Hood's positions on criminal-justice issues tend to align more with conservatives than with advocates for reform of the system. He continues to support the death penalty, including the State's decision to bring back the firing squad for executions.
