Florida Politics: Dave Aronberg’s executive, Alexcia Cox, announces bid to succeed him as Palm Beach SA

Alexcia Cox, current Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office Deputy Chief Assistant, announced she’s running for the top job that would make her the first woman and the first African American to serve in that position.

The announcement from her campaign comes days after three-term Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg said he would not be seeking a fourth term. Cox began working as a prosecutor nearly 20 years ago, according to her campaign statement.

“I’ve made it my mission to hold violent criminals accountable and achieve justice for victims of crime,” said Cox, who will be running as a Democrat. “As a mother, longtime community advocate and prosecutor, serving Palm Beach County residents as their next State Attorney would be a great honor.”
