I offer my services as Circuit Judge. I was appointed Circuit Judge, pro-tem by the Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court after approval by the Supreme Court, upon the recommendation for the position by the Presiding Judge and a select local committee.
I am endorsed by Judge Rudy Murgo as his replacement.
Previously, I served three two year terms as the elected City Judge for Hermiston. As an attorney in practice for nearly 17 years, I have dealt with an expansive body of the Civil and Criminal Law. As a former Prosecutor, I have handled cases from Murder to Traffic.
I believe that the duties of Judge take precedence over all other activities; that everyone with a legal interest has a right to be heard; that those appearing before the court should be treated with patience, and in a dignified and courteous manner; and that the duties of Judge should be carried out in a faithful, impartial and diligent manner.
I ask for your VOTE in this election.
