Why should voters elect you?

"I have the experience, dedication and proven record to continue to provide the citizens with the services they have come to know and deserve."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"The population is growing in size, diversity and age. The individuals we serve are grieving the loss of a loved one and going through the most difficult time in their lives. I must make certain that while the volume of cases increases, each individual receives the same quality service we now provide. Every person who needs the services of this office must be treated with dignity and compassion. We live in a diverse community and must make certain that the grieving individuals who need our office do not face any barriers in communication or understanding of the probate process."
