Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • As a Judge for nearly 14 years and a lawyer for 26 years, I have enjoyed the privilege of serving the public. Early in my judicial service, I believed the court could do more to change the behavior of the addicted offender and more to assist the mentally ill seen in our Court System. It’s been ten years since I started and continue to preside over Buffalo’s Drug Treatment Court and over two years since creating and presiding over the Mental Health Treatment Court. I am a qualified, hardworking, fair, just, and compassionate Judge. I respectfully ask for your vote.
