I am running because victims of crime and the law enforcement officers who risk life and limb to keep our community safe deserve a prosecutor just as good as, if not better than, the attorneys coming to court on behalf of criminals. I am running so Kenton County residents are confident their felony prosecutor will never be outsmarted or outworked by defense attorneys.

I love going to trial. I love seeking justice on behalf of those who have been victimized by predators. Quite simply, I love my job. The dedicated staff of my office does great work on behalf on Kenton County's citizens and I want to continue this tradition of excellence.
I have a proven track record as an aggressive, innovative, and fair prosecutor. I recognize the enormous responsibility a prosecutor has to victims of crime, law enforcement, and criminal defendants alike, and strive to make sure justice is delivered swiftly, fairly, and effectively. I am recognized and respected as a law enforcement leader, not only locally, but statewide. I've been honored to be elected President of the Kentucky Commonwealth's Attorneys Association and still serve as the organization's legislative liaison. Likewise, I've also been recognized for creative approaches on a variety of topics from courtroom technology to drug treatment programs for minor offenders. Under my leadership and through the hard work of my staff, Kenton County leads the way for felony prosecution in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
