Goals:  My main goal while in office is to make sure that each citizen in Kaufman County that I come in contact with through the court system is given a fair ruling and that the decision I made was one with integrity, honesty, and in the best interest of Justice.  I realize that the decisions I make on a daily basis will greatly affect the persons involved. Therefore, the objective is to make the best decision possible so that each person leaving court will know that they were given a decision that was well thought out and that they were treated fairly and with the up most respect.  Public Service is all about helping people and that is the most rewarding and important part of my job.
