Hochman, vying for District Attorney, visits Larchmont

| June 27, 2024 | 0 Comments


Nathan Hochman is campaigning to be elected the next District Attorney (DA) of Los Angeles County. In late June, he told a group of locals, “The race is not about politics, but who is going to keep you safe for the next four years.” He emphasized that California law specifies that the position of County DA is nonpartisan, with the DA’s actions to be based upon adopted laws, not personal political beliefs.

Hochman was conversing with about 40 community members at an early morning gathering on the shady back patio of Le Pain Quotidien, 113 N. Larchmont Blvd.

According to Hochman, we are living in a “culture of lawlessness instead of a culture of lawfulness.” A former Assistant U.S. Attorney who prosecuted criminal cases in Los Angeles and an Assistant Attorney General who brought cases throughout the country for two years from Washington, D.C., Hochman has spent the past 15 years back in Los Angeles in private practice as a criminal defense and tax lawyer. At the Le Pain Quotidien gathering, Hochman said of the lawlessness, “As a native Angeleno, I refuse to leave Los Angeles” because of safety issues.

He stated that his goals, if elected, include returning to a time when there are “clear lines in society with accountability for your actions.”

Hochman is running against incumbent DA George Gascón in the Tues., Nov. 5, runoff election.
