Statement I look forward to serving the public for another four years. I have enjoyed working with our community partners to provide equal access to justice for all. I am particularly proud of the improvements our Court has made in assisting homeless, mentally ill and drug addicted individuals involved in the criminal justice system. In cooperation with Superior Court, we recently expanded our Mental Health Court to include pre-plea felonies and misdemeanors.

I promise to continue to make well-reasoned decisions after listening and carefully considering all arguments and legal authorities. I will strive to work with other law and justice agencies to find innovative ways to reduce jail, court, and probation costs. Thank you for your continued support.
