A JUDGE WHO WILL PROTECT YOUR VALUES
PRO-LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FIRST RESPONDERS
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
The Constitution must be strictly construed as written by our founding fathers. I oppose a liberal construction since that subjects the Constitution being interpreted or twisted to fit a particular personal bias, view, political agenda, or objective. Judges must follow and apply the rule of law without influence from outside factors or special interests.
Judges should treat everyone with respect and dignity. As a Judge elected by the people, I pledge that every one of your Constitutional rights will be protected. I will apply the law and will not legislate from the bench. I will be a strict constructionist of the law.
As a lifelong resident of North Carolina and a conservative Republican, I will work hard for you and ensure that my rulings are timely, concise, well-reasoned, and in accordance with the Constitution and laws.
