Judicial Philosophy (Max 250 words)I am a conservative jurist who believes that judges should strictly interpret the law as written and not make law based on their personal or political agendas. Over the more than twenty years that I have served as a judge, including my experience as a State District Judge and Appellate Justice, I have been dedicated to strict construction of the law and the impartial administration of justice.
