City where I live: Portland
Skills: I became a judge on the Court of Appeals in 1995 by election to an open seat. Since then, I have participated with my colleagues in deciding thousands of appeals. Before joining the court, I practiced law in Oregon for 16 years, focused on appeals.
3 things I will do if I win:
1. Judges play an important but limited role, which is to give effect to the policy choices made by others. I am proud, and humbled, to have served 23 years on the Court of Appeals, and I ask for your vote to allow me to continue to do that work.
