The people of Davie and Davidson Counties deserve a Judge who embodies the principles of service, integrity, and leadership. My life has always steered me towards service and protecting those who cannot protect themselves. I come from a military family; I consider myself a patriot. My family instilled in me a deep love for our country and a desire to serve and protect it, and, if necessary, to sacrifice in its defense. My father made the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in Vietnam when I was eight months old. The values my family instilled in me lead me to join the Marine Corps when I was seventeen and to serve as an infantryman. Thirty-two years later, I continue to serve, now as a Major in the U.S. Army Reserve JAG Corps.
Every member of our community deserves a Judge who will treat with them with respect, courtesy, and unwavering fairness regardless of where they are from, what they look like, or how much money they have. As a Judge, your code is one of both morals and laws. Being a judge is not a job; it is a calling, and judges should serve the people, not themselves. Integrity means a firm adherence to a code. Judges must be balanced and impartial in every case and they must uphold the law. As John Adams said, our government is, "a government of laws, not of men." I have witnessed the intolerable tyranny that results when a person or government fails to respect the rule of law and tramples on individual freedoms. It takes a leader to stand up to such tyranny and stop it.
As your District Court Judge, I will work as a selfless servant to you and our community. I will be fair and enforce the law. I will spend every waking moment working to make you proud that I am your District Court Judge. I humbly ask for your support and your vote for District Court Judge of Davidson and Davie County.
Thank you and God Bless.
