OUR CANDIDATES

Beth Grossman for DA

Crime doesn’t care where you live or to which political party you belong; nor does Beth. What Beth cares about is restoring integrity and the public’s trust in the District Attorney’s Office and improving public safety and quality of life for all Philadelphians.  This includes ensuring that cases are prosecuted fairly, justly and ethically, victims and survivors of crime are treated with compassion, and sentences sought are fair and appropriate.  Under Beth, the District Attorney’s Office will uphold our laws while safeguarding the constitutional rights of all people.

For over 21 ½ years, Beth served as an Assistant District Attorney in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. She proudly served in every division of the office, including Trials, Juvenile, Law, Investigations and Narcotics.

In April of 2015, Beth resigned from the District Attorney’s Office to become Chief of Staff at the Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections, where she gained experience in overseeing and managing a large city department.  During her tenure there, Beth oversaw the implementation of new demolition contractor license legislation and requirements to ensure that incidents like the demolition tragedy that occurred at 22nd and Market do not happen again.  At Licenses and Inspections, Beth also worked with city agencies including the Commerce Department in addressing public nuisances and improving residential and commercial corridors.

Beth is now in private practice, representing individuals in both civil and criminal cases.

He managed accounting, financial reporting and corporate compliance.   Mike was then recruited by Philadelphia Insurance Companies where he was hired as Controller. He managed and directed the department responsible for all activities relating to the accounting, financial reporting, internal audit and investment functions of the company. Mike reported directly to the President of the company and Board of Directors.   Mike’s next move was to Prudential Insurance Company as a Management Internal Control Specialist in the legally mandated, newly formed unit. He reviewed, assessed and identified controls to ensure compliance with state insurance laws.    Mike took some time off from the private sector and used the vast experience he gained to teach Math and Accounting and Finance classes in the Philadelphia School District where he was a member of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers Union.   Mike then returned to the private sector as an Independent Consultant, traveling both nationally and internationally primarily focused on audits of corporate financial statements, internal controls and operations.    He was a candidate for State Senate in 2012 and a candidate for State Representative in 2014. Both of his opponents, now Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack and State Rep Mike Driscoll, publicly complimented him on a well-run campaign and his awareness and understanding of the issues.   He is currently a tax accountant.
