District Court is the court that touches the lives of most of our community. Since my election in 2008, I have served the citizens of Mecklenburg County with integrity, compassion, and vision. For the last seven years, presiding in criminal, civil, and juvenile court, I have consistently rendered decisions that are just, impartial, and grounded in the law.
I have endeavored to fulfill my commitment to improve our courts by serving as the Model Court Lead Judge; spear-heading reform efforts that have improved outcomes in child maltreatment cases; and by serving on the North Carolina Court Improvement Project Statewide Advisory Committee. My mission extends beyond the courthouse and into the community. Through my service on the Mecklenburg County Domestic Violence Advisory Board and the Child Fatality Prevention and Protection Team, I have advised the county about opportunities to improve our community’s response to domestic violence and child maltreatment. These initiatives are all aimed at creating a healthier community and creating efficiencies in the Court system.
