Why I want to be  judge 

My career has been dedicated to the pursuit of justice. Having represented clients on both sides of the courtroom, I understand the lasting impacts the Court's decisions have on litigants and their families. Running a courtroom requires someone who has the ability to listen, the patience to attend to details and the compassion to help those who are oftentimes dealing with life-altering and emotional issues. My experience and success handling high level criminal and civil matters give me the knowledge and judgment to be ready to make the important daily decisions of a Circuit Court Judge.

I am running because McHenry County needs judges with experience, intelligence, the right temperament and the intestinal fortitude to get things done fairly, consistently and efficiently. I pride myself on being able to listen to both sides fairly and to think carefully before speaking and making decisions.

It is important to have experienced, knowledgeable judges to handle the extensive and diverse Circuit Court caseload. It is equally important that judges be mindful that the courts are for the benefit of the public and the litigants and not for the judiciary. The conduct and manner of a judge should promote public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary without regard to a person's race, gender, or other personal characteristics. A judge should treat every person fairly and with courtesy and respect. If elected, I will ensure this occurs in my courtroom.
