Why do you feel that you are the best candidate for Sumner County?
Due to dissatisfaction with the current county attorney, I had police officers, attorneys, probation officers, and others familiar with the job contact me and urge me to run for the job I held from 1987 to 1997.  I enjoyed that time, and I am willing to accept those responsibilities again. As county attorney, I was an effective leader of the law enforcement team.  I filed about 20% more adult cases and 40% more juvenile cases per year than my opponent did. In June, 2012, he dismissed 8 of the 32 cases he completed.  This amounts to a 25% dismissal rate.  I will file more cases, have fewer dismissals, and return public confidence and respect to the office.
