Why I’m seeking office: "It has been a pleasure serving as District Court

judge and I look forward to continuing to do so. This position is a huge

responsibility and one I do not take lightly. If elected, I promise to treat

people fairly and with dignity while upholding the law. I hope to expand the

Sobriety Court district wide. I have set aside my private practice since

January of this year to dedicate my time as judge. We have wonderful people

living in this newly created district and I look forward to meeting as many

as possible. The encouragement and support from people in both counties is
