Compassion, Experience & Integrity

The decision to seek your support for 43rd District Court Judge, after serving nearly 20 years as Oakland County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney under two different elected prosecutors, is deeply personal. Historically, we have been fortunate to have incredibly strong judicial leadership serving Ferndale, Hazel Park and Madison Heights through the 43rd District Court. Having handled thousands of criminal cases in my career, cases that brought me into every District Court in our county and every courtroom at the Oakland County Circuit Court, I know just how important experienced, compassionate judges are to maintaining the integrity of our courts.

These disruptive times, that are altering our daily lives in ways we could have never imagined, are also requiring courts to adapt in ways that require innovation and responsiveness. Having trained years ago at the 43rd District Court, the opportunity to come home to serve my community again is one I take seriously. You have my commitment to work every day to keep our court strong and focused on what matters most to all of us – strengthening and keeping our communities safe for our seniors, for every resident and for future generations.

My experience with elder and child abuse, juvenile delinquency, domestic violence, violent sexual offenses, crimes against the most vulnerable, human trafficking, homicide, complex financial crimes and many violent and serious offenses, has provided me with the unique perspective and understanding of the skills and temperament needed to be a fair and effective judge.

I’m humbled by the strong support from voters in Ferndale, Hazel Park and Madison Heights on August 4th and I’m asking for your vote again on Tuesday, November 3rd!
