Question 1

List your judicial experience (courts and years)

Acting Judge Wadsworth Muncipal Court - 2002-2014

Question 2

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

I have practiced in the Wadsworth Muncipal Court my entire legal carreer including as a private counsel in civil, criminal, and traffic cases and as the sole prosecutor representing the State of Ohio and City of Wadsworth.  Noone has more trial expirence in that Court over the past 25 years than I have.  In addition, as the law director for the City I have been instrumental in working with the Court on budgetary issues, review of contractual services, and Court security.

Question 3

Why are you running for this particular court seat?

I am running to be Judge of the Wadsworth Municipal Court because I believe I have the expirence and competence to do a superior job.  As a trial attorney my entire carreer, I can bring that expirence to the bench in order to help keep my community safe and make sure that justice always is done.
