Please describe why you would be the best candidate for the open judicial position:                        

My experience, over 30 years in the law, has taught me much about the responsibility for administering the law fairly to all, about the respect I owe each litigant, attorney, witness and others who come into my courtroom. My commitment to those principles, I believe, is largely responsible for the respect reflected back to me by the local bar and those who appear before me.
