In the nearly 28 years I have had the privilege of serving as a judge on the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, I have presided over approximately 40,000 cases.
During that time, there has not been one credible complaint of discrimination raised against me based on race, religion, or sexual orientation.
I am known as a fair, honest, and impartial judge. The thousands of attorneys who practice in my courtroom know me best. They have a high regard for my reputation as evidenced by my excellent rating by the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association and the Cuyahoga County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
Indeed, in the current election cycle, the Norman S. Minor Bar Association, a bar association comprised of minority men and women, and the Ohio Women’s Bar Association, rate me as a good judge.
Moreover, additional groups and organizations such as the Fraternal Order of Police, the AFLCIO, the Teamsters Ohio D.R.I.V.E., the Cleveland American’s of Middle Eastern Origin(known as “Cameo”), and The Cleveland Stonewall Democrats, an LBGT Group, have all endorsed my candidacy on the basis of my excellent reputation for fairness and equality.
