Why should the voters elect you?

"During my tenure, I automated the jury management system, reducing the time citizens serve on jury duty from eight weeks to two weeks; developed probate, adoption and divorce procedural manuals for citizens; expanded remote access to include over 10 million land record images with related indexes; increased access time from 12 hours/five days a week to 24 hours/seven days a week; and streamlined bureaucracy by consolidating judicial operations and the clerk's office into one agency, eliminating duplicative management positions. I am currently working with the Virginia Supreme Court and the Fairfax Bar Association to implement an electronic filing pilot program."

What would you like voters to know about you?
