Running for office is hard.  People will come out of the woodwork to either attack you or support you.   You have to develop a very thick skin. Whether it is something nice or something nasty that people  say - just saying it doesn't make it true. I don't know that I will get used to that in the coming months.  What I can say is that I believe in fairness, hard work, and due process. As a judge I will deal with  each case fairly and in accordance with the law. I will maintain a good temperament and I will listen to  the lawyers and the litigants. I will come to court prepared. I will be decisive but fair. If that is what  you want in a judge, I hope you will vote for me in the August primary and in the November election.   Thank you.

In elections for Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals and Superior Court, contested positions generally appear on the primary ballot. If a judicial candidate receives more than 50% of the votes in the primary, that candidate will appear on the November ballot without opposition. The primary will effectively determine the final outcome. BALLOTS MAILED     July 18th, 2012 PRIMARY DAY     August 7, 2012
