Bar Association Ratings:
(1) List your judicial experience (courts and years)
I am completing my second full six year term on the Stark County bench.
(2) What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I practiced for over 20 years. I was the Canton City Prosecutor for over 14 years. I also had a private practice in Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice and Domestic Relations.
(3) Why are you running for this particular court seat?
I would like to continue my work on the Opioid epidemic. We need to save lives. Approximately six years ago I formed the Stop Heroin From Killing Committee to combat the Opioid problem. Since that time we have offered free symposiums, run radio ads, hosted high school billboard contests and developed a power point presentation to get our message to the public.
