Statement: It has been an honor to serve as your Judge for the past 18 years. Although I have enjoyed the challenges of working as a Superior Court Judge at the courthouse in Port Angeles, I am excited about being able to return to employment closer to home.

As the only candidate with experience as an elected Judge, I am acutely aware of the votersí expectations. I was appointed Clallam County District Court II Judge in 2001 and then elected to that position in 2002, 2006 and 2010. In 2012, I successfully ran for the county-wide Superior Court Judge position and was re-elected to that position in 2016.

My wife, Cari, and I have continuously lived in the West End since moving here from Port Angeles in 2001. We love the outdoors and spend most of our spare time exploring the stunning wilderness areas that surround us.

During my 12 years of experience serving as District Court II Judge in Forks, I established that I am a no-nonsense Judge with a passion for fairness and justice. I look forward to returning as your District Court II Judge and respectfully ask for your vote.
