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.")

I bring a variety of practice experience in several areas. I am an adjunct professor at Capital University Law School and consider myself to be a student of the law. I love to research, look for new case law, and keep abreast of the decisions issued and the impact to our community. I have the temperament that a jurist should have and do not rule based upon my personal views but, I issue opinions solely based in law.

I will bring diversity to the Court of Appeals where in the 217-year history of Franklin County has had 2 minorities. As a member of the legal community, we are the Keeper of the Scales. If there is no balance in diversity, mindset, or experience, you continue to have homogenous decisions that do not reflect our current society.
