Why should the voters elect you?

"Voters should elect me because I have the knowledge, experience and skills to do the job. For the past four years, I have worked well with the other judges to move estates along efficiently and expeditiously. I take a 'common sense' approach to the law and try to view situations the way a layperson would with little or no knowledge of the law. My related job experiences, life experiences and work experience in the legal field are all valuable assets to the court."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"I am not a politician. I am a fair and impartial judge. I am a respectful and compassionate person."
