Question 1

List your judicial experience (courts and years)

I have been the judge of Clinton County Municipal Court since July of 2015.

Question 2

What non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?

I have helped my wonderful wife raise three children. Two are adults, one is a junior in high school and will soon be an Eagle Scout. They are all great people. Raising children is the best preparation for work as a municipal judge. I also practiced law in Ohio for 20 years before being elected to this position. I have served as a prosecutor, a public defender, a civil litigator, and legal advisor to two municipalities. I have been the principal in two law firms. I understand organizational management, and government financial management. As the sole judge, these skills are constantly in use.

Question 3

Why are you running for this particular court seat?

I like this job. I do this job very well. I believe that Clinton County is a better place because of the good job that I do here.
