Why should voters elect you?
"I hope Maryland voters will retain me based on my record as a fair, conscientious, knowledgeable and respected judge with 16 years of judicial experience."
What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"As one of Maryland's 20 appellate judges, I am privileged to serve the citizens of this state. Appellate judges review for error the wide variety of civil and criminal proceedings conducted by trial courts throughout the state. In doing so, we must remain vigilant to our time-honored role in safeguarding the constitutional rights that are the cornerstone of our democracy. Judges must also strive to assure equal access to the courts. Because a robust democracy depends on an independent and respected judiciary, it is imperative that we maintain public confidence and trust in the integrity of the judicial system."
