The Supreme Court should be trusted to uphold and defend the rule of law, without passion or prejudice. I’ll be a Supreme Court Justice dedicated to upholding the constitution and the rights of all Kentuckians.
I have served for nearly eight years as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the committee of jurisdiction for every policy affecting the court system in Kentucky. I also serve on the Budget Review Subcommittee on Justice and Judiciary; and as Co-Chair of the Juvenile Justice Oversight Council, which monitors the implementation of justice system reforms.
With a deep understanding of the legislative process, I bring a fresh perspective to the Supreme Court; the branch of government clearly and intentionally set apart from policymaking. Judges should not legislate from the bench. We cannot afford to let passion or prejudice cloud our judgment at this level. We trust the Supreme Court to uphold and defend the rule of law and that is precisely what I commit to do as Kentucky’s next 1st District Justice.
