My parents who worked hard to improve our community for all of their working lives and well into retirement. My father was well known for representing indigent litigants pro bono particularly in issues of equal housing and human rights. My mother, a social worker, worked full time while raising five children in an era not always kind to women’s issues. Both of my parents are honored in the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame.
I do the best I know how, every day, and my goal is to help people make positive changes in their lives. It is a blessing to work at a job that you enjoy and I frequently hear positive feedback from litigants who have appeared before me.
What are some of the most significant challenges facing Kentucky's judicial system and how do you propose to address them?
Significant challenges are the opiod crisis, neighborhood violence, jail overcrowding, equal justice for all people who come before the Court. The bench is making strides in offering alternatives to jail for drug addicts. Violence in neighborhoods I believe is driven by the drug trade and can only be solved by improved educational and job opportunities for young people so they can see a successful life in front of them, jail overcrowding may be addressed by alternative incarceration methods and rehabilitation programs. And currently, there is a trend to make changes in the way that bail is set so that indigent individuals will not sit in jail simply because they cannot afford to make bond.
