“I’ve been fortunate to serve the City of Spokane as a judge for over nine years. There, I had an opportunity to change the way our community experiences justice and I’m proud of that.
I’m grateful that Gov. Inslee put his faith in me when he appointed me to serve as judge of of the Superior Court, based on my qualifications and experience, so that I can do that on a larger scale; I ask the voters of Spokane County to do the same in November.
I will continue to work hard for the citizens and earn their trust. I am grateful to have been raised in a family that instilled a strong work ethic, common sense, social justice, and compassion for others.
I have drawn on these traits when I was on the bench and continue to do so. “Equal justice under the law” must mean something more than just being a saying carved in marble on buildings.
Our courts must be a place where everyone — regardless of status, labels or how much money they have — experiences justice. I have been committed to doing that all day, every day for over nine years as a judge and twenty-seven as a lawyer.
It’s not a promise, it’s been performance. With your vote, I hope to continue to serve our community and improve the way Spokane experiences justice.”
