Attorney General Moody’s Statement on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day



TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Ashley Moody today released the following statement in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:

“Today we recognize a great leader in our nation’s history. Martin Luther King, Jr. showed how to boldly pursue justice with passion and civility. As a former judge, I believe justice is a defining principle of our great country. Fairness in our judicial system enables us to trust our government and without it, we certainly would fail. As your Attorney General, I promise I will always seek fairness and justice for all Floridians. These are values Dr. King ultimately gave his life for. His dream directs all public servants to continue perfecting this experiment we call the United States of America—and I am continuously inspired by the life he led.”
