My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensuring that the Court is equally accessible to all, including self-represented litigants.
  • To expand the Court's collaborative justice programs, which use a team approach to address the root causes of criminal behavior in adult and juveniles with alcohol, drug and mental health problems.
  • Ensuring that everyone who appears in Court is treated with equal respect and dignity.
