Statement: The office of Superior Court Judge shoulders great
responsibility, and serves a most critical role in our justice system.
An effective justice system, based upon the principles of integrity and
fairness, is a cornerstone of infrastructure necessary for our
communities to remain stable and safe, and to grow. A judge must possess
qualities, and set standards, beyond the role of attorney and advocate,
including: integrity & character, mild temperament, legal knowledge,
work ethic, respect for the limited role of the judiciary, and
connection with local concerns & community values. I have dedicated my
career to serving, and working to improve, our justice system in Adams
County. I have had the privilege of serving as your elected Prosecuting
Attorney for nearly the past 10 years. During this time I have gained a
wealth of legal experience appropriate to the Superior Court Bench. I
have worked cooperatively with numerous community leaders, and have a
demonstrated record as a public official. I present to you as a
candidate who is well qualified, who possesses the qualities appropriate
to the bench, committed to maintaining the standards the bench must set,
and is best situated to promote long-term stability of our justice
