Why I should be elected
I am the candidate with the most experience in the courtroom. I am also the candidate with the broadest fields of practice. I am an Assistant District Attorney. I have been a Mental Health Hearing officer over 24 years, and beginning in 2012, the courts have appointed me to preside over domestic relations proceedings. I am the only candidate highly recommended by the Mercer County Bar Association.
Top three priorities
Delivering fair, objective, and when needed, tough justice.
