"With the support of my family, I would like to announce that I am seeking election as District Judge for Division D of the 21st JDC.  This bench was held by the Honorable Judge Doug Hughes, who recently retired after serving our district for almost 25 years.  The Honorable Judge Hughes will be missed by all who served in his courtroom.  I have 17 years of experience practicing law, including 12 years practicing criminal law in the courtrooms of the 21st JDC.  If elected, I will use the knowledge and skills that I have obtained to treat every case and each individual with respect, dignity, and fairness."
