★ Reforming the State’s Bail System

Shelley will make public safety a top priority by supporting bail reform and other measures that keep felons, including capital murderers and violent offenders off the streets. Having violent offenders released on no, or very low, cost bonds encourages repeat offenses and emboldens criminals. Shelley will lead efforts to hold Judges accountable for endangering our citizens and failing to hold criminals accountable. In addition, Shelley will work closely with Crime Stoppers of Houston and local law enforcement.
