After much thought and prayer, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for Circuit Court Judge Post 4.

I appreciate all the encouragement and support that I have received for my campaign. I believe that I would have been successful in my bid to be the first ever Post 4 Circuit Court Judge. Unfortunately, due to circumstances that have arisen, which are completely out of my control, I must think first about my children and their well being.

All campaign funds have been returned in full along with a gracious thank you to those supporters. All necessary documents have been filed with the Secretary of State’s office. I anticipate returning to the Post 4 Circuit Judge campaign trail in four years, and, at that time, will solicit your support and vote.

Thank you again. God Bless.
