All I have ever wanted is to serve the community I call home. If given the opportunity, I want to bring fairness and transparency to the court but most importantly I want to bring compassion to the 464th District Court. I want to preside over a court that works harmoniously with attorneys and the community to bring resolve and closure to what is usually a horrible time for most.
