The primary election was held on August 3, 2010 and over 20,000 votes were cast in the election for our next 55th District Court judge. Unfortunately our campaign came in third of four candidates and thus my official campaign ends here. This will not be the last you hear of me however, as I intend to continue working to aid our citizens and serve our community in whatever capacity I can.

I would like to thank my supporters for all of your time and assistance in running an excellent campaign. We have much to be proud of. I received nearly 20% of the vote in a tough four-way race with an incumbent judge. I failed to make the cut by only 156 votes and by less than .7% point difference from the second place finisher. I did all of this despite having been out spent by my challengers five-to-one and six-to-one respectively. All along I focused on hard work and efficiency and I certainly performed well in that regard. Finally, I learned an enormous amount about the process of running a campaign and I will certainly put that knowledge to use in the future!

Thank you again for all of your help and support.
