Please describe why you would be the best candidate for the open judicial position:
As a practicing attorney for nearly 20 years, my experience is extensive and diverse.  Unlike my opponents, I have experience in the public and private sectors, including criminal and civil litigation, and government and corporate legal experience. My experience has taught me to seek, first, to understand, to read thoroughly, to listen closely to the evidence and the arguments, to examine the law carefully, and to weigh the alternatives and risks.  My broad knowledge of the law and our legal system will ensure I am thoughtful in my deliberations and will render decisions that stand up to appellate scrutiny. As a superior court judge, I will always demonstrate high ethical character and a deep respect for the parties and the rule of law.  By following such a work ethic, I am prepared to make important decisions and the public can be assured of the integrity and fairness of the outcome.
