Questions & Answers

1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (50 word limit)

Judges must always be dedicated to the attainment of justice. Judges must be fair, work hard and be dedicated to their oath. During my years as a judge I have done my best to adhere to that conviction. The Court of Appeals is not a position to espouse a political philosophy or agenda. Judges must follow the law and interpret the law not make the law. That is a judge's duty. I have tried many cases and been involved in the daily court system for over 26 years. I believe my experience will be a benefit to the court.
