I have gained a broad range of experience working in a small district attorney's office in Curry County over the last four years. During this time I have gained the respect of my coworkers, judges, defense attorneys, and police officers for my ability in the courtroom, preparation of my cases, sense of fairness and justice in resolving cases, personal integrity and my likeable personality.

I visited Wheeler County for the first time on August 1, 2008. I found the people I visited warm and welcoming. As I traveled through the county with my family and as I stood in front of Wheeler High School overlooking Fossil, I realized Wheeler County was a place my wife, my four children, and I could call home.

As your district attorney I will stand for:
