I have decided not to run for re-election. Those closest to me encouraged me to accept the challenge to serve as District Attorney and understand my reasons for choosing not to seek another term. They have essentially served along with me so I will always be grateful for their encouragement and support.

I have enjoyed the great privilege of serving as a prosecutor since former District Attorney David Pollock asked me to join the Greene County District Attorney’s Office in 1989.

In 2001 following the resignation of former District Attorney Glenn Toothman, III, Judge H. Terry Grimes and Judge William Nalitz appointed me to serve as District Attorney. I hope that my service reflects the diligence and dedication demonstrated by these two humble jurists and merits the trust placed in me thereafter by the voters of Greene County.

I cannot imagine a more interesting or fulfilling career. I have learned so much from so many to include the grace demonstrated by the victims of crime to the determination of those defendants who strive to find their way to productive lives.

Many dedicated public servants continue to selflessly serve us, to include my co-workers past and present at the District Attorney’s Office as well as the honored members of law enforcement and the many first responders who work tirelessly to assure our safety. I recognize and appreciate what each contributes both to this community and to my experience as District Attorney.
