My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensure public safety, faithfully adhere to our Constitution and the rule of law, and maintain the integrity of our Courts.
  • Oversee a courtroom where everyone will be given the opportunity to be heard, have equal access to justice, and be treated fairly, impartially, with dignity, and respect.
  • Provide individuals with the incentive and desire to take responsibility for their actions and advantage of the resources available through our Collaborative Courts, in order to combat recidivism.
