Members of the Community,

As your District Attorney for the 13th Judicial District, I can honestly say there are no words to describe the rewarding experience in holding this honorable position. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to protect and serve my community.

I began my career as an educator and understand the valued importance to seek and maintain community collaboration and involvement. I encourage representatives, community leaders and citizens across the political and professional spectrum to join me in the Fight Against Crime. All of us have a great responsibility and obligation to each other and our community to put our resources together to meet this challenge.

I believe in education within our communities, schools, businesses, as well as, all government and independent agencies. I continue to educate within my district through workshops, retreats, conferences and a steady flow of increased awareness.

There is no quick and easy solution to stop crime. This can only be accomplished through dedication, determination, hard work and a willingness to move forward. We can unite together in making a difference in our children's lives, schools, and communities for a safer and crime free environment.
