I want to take a moment to tell all of you how honored I am to have the opportunity to serve and represent you as Rock Island County State’s Attorney. This has been a very exciting and challenging process for me and I have enjoyed meeting so many new people and groups in the last several months.
As many of you may know, I have spent several years in court litigating criminal and civil cases and have been active in our legal community. Rock Island County and the courthouse community has become a second home to me over the years and I cannot think of a bigger privilege than to be chosen as one of its officials. I am a firm believer in hard work, public
service and respect toward others.
Now, I will take these values and help lead our County with an energetic and community-driven approach to improve the safety of our community, efficiency of our cases and the communication within our offices.
I am excited to announce that my family and I have made the decision that I will run for election in 2020 and I look forward to working closely with each of you in the upcoming months.
I will always have an open-door policy and pledge to be transparent and accessible for any of your concerns or needs going forward.
I look forward to meeting you along the campaign trail.
Rock Island County State's Attorney
