The Right Choice For Jackson County Judge.

I am blessed to have a wonderful family and live in the Rogue Valley. As a husband and father of three children, I understand how challenging it can be to raise a family today. I am running for judge because I love the Rogue Valley and want to make this a better, safer community for children, families, and senior citizens.

As Jackson County's senior domestic violence and elder abuse prosecutor, I work hard each day to hold criminals accountable and protect victims. I am a committed, active citizen and a member of Rotary, Ducks Unlimited, and Southern Oregon Historical Society.

In my career as a deputy district attorney I've prosecuted a range of cases, including murders, serious felony assaults, complex financial fraud crimes, DUIIs, and fish and game violations, as well as drafting and enforcing civil child support orders. In each of these positions I've worked with honesty, integrity, and fairness.

Prosecutors, civil law attorneys, law enforcement officers, and other prominent leaders of this community support my candidacy because I have the right background and proper temperament for the job.
