1) Why are you running for this position?

“Judge Cecile Blau has served our community well for 12 years and I believe our community deserves the continuation of integrity and accountability she upheld. We need a fair and compassionate Judge. A Judge who shares and cares in each individuals interests and our communities interests. I was born and raised in Clark County and after serving in the United States Marine Corps I returned to Clark County to attend college. Then after attending law school in Indianapolis, I returned home to Clark County to start my law practice and raise my family. I returned to Clark County because I believe in our community. This is a wonderful community and deserves a Judge who has the community interests in mind. Our community needs a positive Judge. A Judge you can believe in. A Judge the community can believe in. I look forward to having the opportunity to serve this great community in such a vital position.”
