There are limits on what assurances I can give regarding how I will conduct myself on the Bench.
I will be dedicated to work hard (and as long as it takes) every day to bring each matter to a swift resolution
(resolving cases as quickly as fairness and justice will allow). I have extensive experience both in trial and
with the courtroom staff. I know the system thoroughly and can use that knowledge to prevent delay in both
the handling of the courts daily docket and in the final resolution of cases. I have the values and character to
handle all cases without alterior motives influencing my decisions – I can be completely fair and impartial. I
have the character to resist the “political or personal” presure to let favoritism influence my decisions.
