At a candidate forum this morning, Manhattan district attorney candidate Leslie Crocker Snyder said she wouldn’t seek a removal of current employees from the office if she won.

“There are a lot of rumors out there and that is one of them that I’ve heard, repeatedly,” Snyder said at the event on the West 51st Street, hosted by the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce.

“As been said, there’s so much talent in the office that I would hope almost all of them would stay,” she said. She went on to say, “This is a great office and there are many great things I would love to build on.”

She did go on to say that the office was not “progressive” enough, and that she’d like more attorneys there to know how to prosecute white-collar crimes.

Snyder ran for the office four years ago and has been critical of the current district attorney, Robert Morgenthau, who is not seeking reelection this year.
