As an Attorney I have the experience of prosecuting over 5,000 cases, working as a Police Officer taught me patience, getting married and having a family taught me humility, a few were lucky enough to be born in Bryan County, many others like myself, selected to become a part of this community to educate and raise our families here for its' high standards in education and strong sense of community. Being a part of a community also means serving it when you know that you have the experience, talent and skills to serve it best, therefore it is with the overwhelming support of my peers, friends and family that I announce my candidacy for Solicitor General of Bryan County.

When a new opportunity is made available to anyone, the first question one must ask is, “Am I the best person for the job?” 
My answer is a simple "Yes". The Solicitor General for Bryan County is a one person department, there are no mentors, no senior members, the person elected by the people to watch over their safety, to ensure their quality of life must be able to do this job effectively on the first day and every day that follows. I have prosecuted cases in eight different local jurisdictions, including serving as a substitute solicitor for Bryan County; no others seeking this office have this level of on the job experience prosecuting in the State of Georgia defending the rights, safety, and well being of the people.

In my ten years as a police officer, I saw death, destruction, loss and anguish, I attended court as a part of my job and saw firsthand how the system is supposed to work, then there were those times when I watched victims suffer twice when the legal system let them down. It was seeing injustice which motivated me to attend law school. I knew I could affect the lives of good, law abiding people in a more meaningful way if I were not chasing a few bad guys, but ensuring many more were punished for their crimes.

Not every violator deserves jail, I believe in creative methods of both punishment and restitution for minor offenses, the realities in the real world are not always black and white, and sometimes gray is the right color. I mention this because every candidate for this office and offices like this in all parts of the country will proclaim they are tough on crime, let me tell you that as taxpayers, we also need to be savvy about our legal system. Justice is represented by scales, ideally working best when the punishment fits the crime committed.

As your Solicitor General, I will always do my utmost to protect our community by being honest, forthright, and fair. I will serve no master except the citizens of Bryan County. 
I would greatly appreciate your support and your vote in the election ahead, 
Thank you.
