What qualifies you for this office?

Prior experience.

What are your plans if elected?

Currently the District Attorney's office in Shelby County suffers from a public perception problem, which is the people have lost trust in the integrity of the office. Whoever is elected must labor long and hard to earn that trust and restore the people's faith in the person running the office.  If elected I pledge to seat juries and have juries input on disposition of cases.  When the people have a say in their government they trust the results.  I will work hard to reduce the size of the docket because the catch and release program we have now does nothing to serve justice or deter crime.
