About two years ago I decided to close my law practice and go to work at the Tulsa County Public Defender's Office. From my experience as a public defender I came to see the injustice in our criminal justice system. Moreover, I realized the majority of our current representatives have no experience in the criminal justice system and I could bring a reasoned perspective to the legislature. Additionally, I have been upset for years with the fact that our state is always at the bottom of the pack in education. I believe that education is the cornerstone to a productive society and we need to do more as a state for our public school educators.
Criminal justice reform. Education reform. Health Care reform. The homeless problem in Tulsa. Legalization of recreational marijuana.
I have spent the last twenty plus years of my life solving people's problems. As an attorney, whenever someone comes into my office they come in because something has gone awry in their life. It has been my job to think outside of the box and come up with a viable solution. Now, more than ever, we need intelligent and caring people in our government. The pandemic has created a worldwide dilemma and Oklahoma has not avoided it's touch. I am the best person for the job because I will come up with ideas and solutions to the many new problems our state government will face in the years to come.
