FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Experienced with budgets and grants

"Now more than ever, our courts must adapt and serve the needs of our community. We need to ensure that each litigant, witness and victim is heard and respected. New and innovative solutions must be found to help those who are facing mental health and addictions crises. Problem solving courts, like the Monroe County Drug Treatment Court, Veterans Court, Mental Health Court, and others must be supported and expanded.  I have seen their successes firsthand. I helped establish the Drug Treatment Court here, and later served on that team.  I understand the impact that substance use disorder has on this community and how collaborative efforts can make a world of difference. I have the quality of experience to help our community face these and other challenges ahead and, if elected, I pledge to serve with the same dedication and integrity that I have displayed as a trial attorney and community leader."
