“If you believe in science, then you know the root cause behind the majority of crime we are dealing with is poverty, that’s what we truly have to focus on to make our community safer”
– Myles Carter

Myles Carter for Erie County Sheriff

Ending Crime

Science has proven that crime is directly correlated to economics.  People will commit crime out of necessity.  Our platform targets the root cause of crime, poverty.

United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent 

The United Nations recognizes the injustices committed against people of African Descent.  We are not at the moment where we need to focus on the blame, but focus on the solutions.

End Mass Incarceration

Incarceration in Erie County is a $100m business.  We are massively overspending on incarcerating people from our community with no focus on reform or rehabilitation.  Our platform focuses on taking the steps necessary to ensure the convicted are no reoffending.

Police Brutality

Under Executive order 203 issued by Andrew Cuomo, we will work directly with the community to ensure that policing is reinvented to a representation of what the community needs.  Focus on building trust and partnership with the community.

Education

Proactively engage youth through community building and education to educate on drugs, guns, violence, domestic violence and ensuring our youth are equipped with the knowledge necessary to make better decisions.

Community Building

Fund our communities to have safe roads and sidewalks, functioning parks, good schools and a fully functioning social safety net that ensures residents of Erie County are not left in a situation of necessity.

Ending Solitary Confinement

ACLU – “Long-term isolation costs too much, does nothing to rehabilitate prisoners, and exacerbates mental illness - or even causes it in prisoners who were healthy when they entered solitary.”

Accomplishments

Domestic Violence Shelter 

Myles helped establish a domestic violence shelter that is focused on providing transitional services to battered women and children.  The shelter is still fully functioning on the east side and providing services to women and children regularly.

School
