Dear Citizens of Durham County:
Since 2007, it has been my honor and privilege to serve as one of your District Court Judges here in Durham County. I work hard, have a passion for my job, and am confident that I am serving our community well.
I am seeking re-election to my seat on the district court bench in 2014. My credentials are unique: I am the only Board Certified Specialist on the Durham County bench and running in the 2014 election. My specialty is Family Law. My passion, and over half of the function of our District Court, is families and children. I am dedicated to the best interest of our children in Durham.
I am the most qualified candidate running in the November 2014 race: I have almost 8 years of experience as a judge and over 300 hours of judicial and leadership training. I make decisions promptly and remain focused on my obligation to Durham citizens who come into my court room.
There are so many challenges in this job: I am leading discussions about what a Veteran's Court would look like in Durham; I learn something new about families and people every day in my Adult Drug Treatment Court and when I preside in Abuse, Neglect and Dependency Court; and there's so much to learn about compassion and fairness in our criminal and traffic courts.
It is a real blessing to have a job that I love and still, after almost 8 years on the bench, feel passionate about. I thank the Durham community for supporting me for the past 7 years, I continue to be proud of my service and look forward to continuing to honorably serve the Durham community for many years. I ask for your support and vote on NOVEMBER 4th!
