Candidate Statement:

(In response to the question, "Please explain why you believe you are qualified for the judicial position for which you are seeking election.")

My experience as a judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney gives me a unique, diverse background, which allows me to be a truly independent jurist. Although my litigation experience dealt with criminal cases, I believe my extensive trial experience has translated easily to the many civil jury trials I have presided over as judge.
