Why are you running and what strengths would you bring to the judiciary?

Our Court of Appeals needs a fresh perspective with the court now populated mainly with Democrats with a sprinkling of Republicans. I will fully support our constitutions and the Bill of Rights to protect the rights of citizens. I believe our courts are far too solicitous of government actions, and I would strictly apply the Bill of Rights to protect the rights of people and businesses.
