As a candidate for Idaho Supreme Court Justice, I believe that I have the broadest experience and the most extensive skill set. I hope the citizens of Idaho will look to qualifications and not simply endorsements when voting on May 17th.
I have not built my campaign on a list of endorsements from the political establishment. Instead, I have been pounding the pavement and traveling across the state, meeting with folks from all walks of life. I’ve spoken to lawyers, civic groups, schools, and everyday community members — Democrats, Republicans and Independents. I have attended candidate forums where I have had the chance to let people know who I am and what kind of Justice I would be — a Justice who understands the experiences of real Idaho citizens dealing with the law.
I have visited Idaho cities and towns around the state from Porthill to Idaho Falls, from Payette to St. Anthony, and most places in between. After one forum, a young woman talked to me about how she appreciated that I was talking to everyone — not just the ‘elites’.
That’s who I am and that’s what the Court should be — accessible, fair and open. The Idaho Courts exist to serve all the citizens of Idaho. Every Idahoan should have a voice. I best represent those voices. In a recent questionnaire by the Idaho State Bar, I received the highest ranking from my fellow lawyers for understanding the law and commitment to the rule of law.
Never miss a local story.
As an attorney for nearly 20 years, my view is from the “trench not the bench.” I have spent my career representing Idahoans in courtrooms across the state, including in the Idaho Supreme Court. I have dealt with issues ranging from water law to victim’s rights to beef measles. I understand the ‘big picture’ issues facing Idaho and the challenges that small counties face. I offer a fresh, experienced perspective that will add to the success of the Idaho Supreme Court. I ask for your vote on May 17th.
