Statement: Judicial elections are often overlooked. Voters are asked to elect a non-partisan candidate based upon name recognition, brief candidate statements and word of mouth. Incumbent Judges are rarely challenged. Spokane County, it is time to choose change. While I seek your vote, I am really asking you to hire me for Superior Court Position 10. I will be dedicated and fair.
Important decisions affecting legal rights of citizens in civil and criminal cases are decided daily by our judges. While not everyone will be pleased with the decisions made, I can assure you that if your case is assigned to me, I will studiously prepare, patiently listen, respect all litigants, court staff and counsel, and make well-reasoned, sound decisions based upon the law as it is written. Most important, I will not compromise in my dedication to both serve and protect the citizens of Spokane County.
Spokane has been my home for 24 years. I believe in community service and have been a coach and a mentor for at risk youth. In the spare time I have, my wife and I chase the seven children in our blended family.
I would be honored to receive your vote.
