I am seeking to become a district court judge because, for our society to progress, change in some elected offices is needed.
I have been an attorney in private and public practice for 12 years. My current clients include the divisions of police and fire. I have done accounting work at two local country clubs and a stock brokerage firm. I have worked construction, on two production lines and at several local horse farms.
I am chairman of our church board, assistant Cub Scout den leader and coached Little League baseball and boys distance track.
I do not believe a judge needs to have been an attorney all his life. A diverse background gives me insight into the wide variety of issues that come before district court. With my background, I can appreciate the effects of my decisions.
The Herald-Leader takes issue with my representing the government to protect a citizen's personal information. The Herald-Leader lost this case, which hardly proves the basis of an unbiased evaluation of my ability to be a judge.
I try to live by Christian values at home, in the community and at work. This is why I refused to run a negative campaign when interviewed by the Herald-Leader.
Thanks to my family and friends for their help and support in this campaign. To the people of Lexington, many of whom I met while walking neighborhoods, I ask for your vote on Nov. 2.
