What do you see as the top three issues in this race?
As the incumbent candidate, I see the top three issues in this race to be:
- Maintaining a high level of legal and judicial experience on the bench to better serve our community. This includes increasing public education of the experience and credentials of judicial candidates;
- Continuation of positive changes and improvement in the efficiency of our courtroom; and
- Supporting our government and family value system.
