Judge of the Court of Common Pleas
What are your top 3 priorities if elected?
As a Magisterial District Judge and practicing attorney, I see how judges' decisions impact people from all walks of life. We need judges who understand how to administer justice fairly and impartially and who are able to maintain civil discourse. As a judicial candidate, I cannot take a position on any particular issue. However, I can state the following: 1) I will listen and consider all sides of each matter before me with impartiality and with respect for the law and facts. I will not be motivated by my personal policy preferences or outside influences. 2) I will work to increase confidence and trust in our justice system. I will strive to ensure that anyone who comes into my courtroom will leave feeling that they have been treated fairly and with respect. 3) Many people who come into court are under some level of stress. I will be firm and prompt in my decisions, but will also remember that there is a place for patience and compassion on the bench.

As Magistrate I created/implemented the Juvenile Mentoring Program where minors handled their citation not their parents. They read books on a favorite topic, interviewed with me, gave report cards & interned at Elwyn. It dropped my recidivism rate 60% & juveniles gained a sense of accomplishment, confidence, & sensitivity. I have been a family law/civil trial attorney & child advocate for 32 years. I have experience with criminal trials and am a small business owner with my own firm for 28 years. Best of all I am a mother of a fantastic son who over came very tough beginnings. I can do a lot to help the Court's efforts to improve the court system with juveniles, family law & bail/criminal justice system.
