As I have said in the past, I never imagined I would be a politician. I am much more comfortable behind the scenes bringing attention to problems and solutions, not to myself. But I didn’t enter this race unprepared or naïve. My choices, both personally and professionally, have brought me to where I am, have made me who I am and have shaped my future. I can honestly say with confidence that I would be honored to serve as MDJ.

I am a helper, a fixer and protector. I am a stop-talking and start doing, stand up for what is right, tackle the difficult situations type of person. It is just who I am and something I’ve learned to embrace.

I hope the voters recognize that every part of my candidacy was a true reflection of me, my principles and my respect for the justice system. I hope I was able to convey my passion for the community where I live, work, worship and raise my family. I hope they truly see the dedication and commitment I have demonstrated and know that I will carry that with me in every task set before me. I hope they value what can happen when hard-work, common sense and integrity are held in the highest regard.

I hope the voters see my ambition and problem solving skills through the initiatives I’ve launched, programs I’ve established and projects I’ve coordinated. I’ve accomplished these things as Executive Director of United Way of Clarion County, by partnering with other community organizations, and through volunteering with various non-profits. I hope the voters appreciate that the years of work I’ve done for the community wasn’t part of my campaign but rather an intrinsic drive to leave every person a little better than when I met them.

I hope that the voters have researched the candidates and are prepared to select their next MDJ with confidence. I hope the voters choose a candidate based on strength of character, veracity and the ability to uphold the ideals that our justice system was built on. I hope the voters see that I ran a respectful, ethical and clean campaign and know that, if elected, those values will continue to guide me. I hope that the voters understand that the magnitude of responsibility that comes with this position is not lost on me and can rest assured that serving as MDJ will be my only job. I hope the voters trust that their selection will be an advocate for justice; consistently, impartially and fairly.

On Tuesday May 21st, I hope you will exercise your right to vote and I hope you choose me to humbly serve as your MDJ.

I’m happy to talk to you about my candidacy and answer questions. Contact me at,, or visit my website
