Position Papers
Experience counts!
I have 28 years of experience, and every day of it is courtroom experience!
criminal prosecutor turned judge has civil litigation experience
While my 17 years as a criminal prosecutor provides me with an expertise in felony litigation, my last 11 years as a municipal court has provided me with the civil experience needed for common pleas court-the courts use the same rules!
Choose a judge with the right experience for common pleas court
Voters deserve a judge who know what she is doing on DAY ONE on the common pleas bench
