Platform


People often ask me about my platform or my campaign message.  I think what sums up my philosophy about my role as a judge is what my 34 years of legal experience have shown me and what my time on the bench has only reinforced:

A district court judge cannot change the law, but he can make sure the law is followed.

A district court judge cannot change the facts, but he can make sure all of the relevant facts are presented.

A district court judge cannot fundamentally change a person’s life, but he can make sure every person in his courtroom is treated with respect, dignity, and fairness.

A district court judge cannot end injustice in our community, but he can ensure that there is justice in his courtroom.
