We won the democratic primary, but not by a very comfortable margin. Our opponent won the republican primary by a much wider margin. Lots of work to be done for November.
             I am not the kind of person that you see out there money-grabbing, but I need help.  We spent thousands of dollars on the primary campaign and only received $400.00 total in contributions.  This is now the only contested District Justice race in Cumberland County. All other contested races were won by a single candidate on both ballots.
            My opponent has announced that she is endorsed by the Cumberland County District Attorney and the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association. Judges are sworn to be fair and impartial and beholding only to the people they serve and the rule of law.  How can a judge be fair and impartial when she owes her election victory to law enforcement? The judiciary is a separate branch of government from law enforcement.  Separation of Powers was put in the Constitution for a reason. When the lines get blurred, freedom and liberty are at risk.  Please support me in the general election, DONATE, VOLUNTEER, get involved.

A candidate elected to a judicial position is endorsed  by the neighbors and constituents who vote him/her into office on election day. We have seen in our political system how special interests and lobbyists have influenced or expected special treatment by the politicians they help elect.    I will not accept endorsements from anyone but the electorate on election day.   A party or defendant coming before me will not have to wonder whether I am beholding to corporate interests, police or prosecuting attorneys in deciding their case.  I believe in separation of powers.  I promised you integrity, and I don't take that lightly.

Justice, whether criminal or civil, is not easily attained. It takes work, willingness, problem solving skills and creativity. I have honed and employed those skills for 30 years in a variety of settings. I am ready and willing to put in the work necessary to make the MDJ for the tri-borough area an important working partner in the community.

The Magisterial District Court is a community court and the starting place for most local legal issues.  

Civil and some criminal matters can be most effectively handled at the MDJ level with less cost and inconvenience to the parties and witnesses involved.  

 Many programs and alternative sentencing resolutions are available at the MDJ level that would reduce the caseload on the county courts and the costs to the citizens of the county.  Such programs would also provide a second chance to new and young offenders, providing them with guidance and incentive to choose a different path in life that is more productive for themselves and the community.

In civil cases, an concerted effort to bring the parties to a mutual resolution at the MDJ level would reduce the time and cost of protracted litigation at the county level as well as, again, reducing the caseload in the county court and the cost to the community.

Justice, whether criminal or civil, is not easily attained. It takes work, willingness, problem solving skills  and creativity. I have honed and employed those skills for 30 years in a variety of settings.  I am ready and willing to put in the work necessary to make the MDJ for the tri-borough area an important working partner in the community.

If you think local elections are unimportant, consider this:

1) the community you live in is shaped by actions that borough council takes more than the county, state or federal governments.
2) the quality of the schools your children attend is directly related to the work done by school board members from your community and less by state and federal guidelines.
3) the safety and quality of life in your borough lies more in a fully functioning community court (MDJ) and police department than in county, state or federal courts.
4) change starts at local levels
5) your voice is more clearly heard at local levels
VOTE ON MAY 16
