In stating his reasons for running, Pinto said “I think I bring a new dimension to that office because I can do what’s right and I’m not worried about the ramifications of stepping on someone’s toes or doing the politics and worrying about running for some future office. I can bring accountability for that office, and it’s crucial that someone does that.”
