“I’m dedicated to improving access to justice for everyone in our community and building confidence in the judicial system.  Fairness and impartiality are the cornerstones of the court system.  I will strive to make sure every person who comes into court is heard, understood and treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.

Access to justice includes working to simplify legal processes and making sure the courts are run efficiently so that cases are resolved in a timely manner.  This includes using alternative dispute resolution programs and community based educational programs that can help address the underlying causes of legal issues. This is what the public should expect.”
