Background

Professional Background

Statement

I think we need to ensure fairness in the election process and preserve the integrity of the vote. Part of that includes reducing voter disenfranchisement which comes with Gerrymandering. I'm also good with data analysis and I think my skills would serve well on this commission.

Statement on Working with Consensus

As an officer of the court, I believe deeply in the equal application of laws and equal access to the law. This naturally extends to the legislature and the vote. My style of contribution is to rely on data to explain and provide evidence for a point, rather than attempting to bully people into seeing my side. If the evidence isn't there, it's not a viable argument.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

As an attorney, this is all I do. I look for evidence, consider what the law states, and apply one to the other. I have been an attorney for 11 years and as such, have extensive experience using logic and reasoning to arrive at a conclusion.
