Candidate's Campaign Message
As an attorney, who has represented clients in all five counties in our circuit for thirteen years, I have a vested interest in ensuring that my friends and colleagues within the circuit wide legal community have a strong independent voice on the Board of Governors.
I have served our community for years by (1) teaching students at the University of West Georgia in criminal law and constitutional law, (2) advising, providing seminars, and supporting law enforcement officers, (3) mentoring young lawyers and future lawyers, and (4) educating/engaging our citizens about current legal issues in a weekly circuit wide column.
I have also been blessed with the many opportunities to assist others by discussing hope with the man who is addicted to drugs, comforting the mother whose son is in jail, and protecting the Constitutional rights of our people.
In the last year, I supported past State Bar President Lester Tate and Sen. Josh McKoon in a bipartisan effort opposing Amendment 3. While the amendment ultimately passed, strong leadership is needed to continue the fight for an independent judiciary.
Additionally, in July, our law firm conducted a seminar for law enforcement officers in west Georgia that focused on recent case law developments in the areas of search and seizure, traffic stops, and chemical testing.
I have found that my experiences have assisted me in becoming a better listener, servant, and team player. These qualities are critical for members of the Board of Governors.
Why should you vote for me? My leadership, work ethic, commitment to all five counties in our circuit, and vested interest will assure our legal community that I will always advocate for our what is in our best interest and be a strong independent voice for the Coweta Judicial Circuit.
