I’m running as a Republican to give a voice to the many Constitutional Republicans who are appalled at the assault on the rule of law, and the checks and balances of our Constitutional Republic that is happening every day. Secondly, to point out the mistake of being the only state in 100 years to make our judicial elections partisan.

Fairness, impartiality, integrity, and a commitment to the rule of law all are essential characteristics of a good judge. I’ve worked hard to live up to each of these principles, gaining invaluable first-hand experience, which is why I’m seeking re-election.

As the only candidate in this race with judicial experience, I understand that this is not an entry level job.
