"After much consideration I have made the decision to withdraw my candidacy for District Court Judge Division 1. While I would consider it an honor to serve as your District Court Judge, work remains to be done in my current position as your Commonwealth’s Attorney. I have dedicated the last 19 years of my career to prosecuting criminals and assisting victims of crime. The safety of our communities remains my priority and I believe remaining your Commonwealth’s Attorney will allow me the opportunity to continue in this endeavor.
I would like to thank my family and friends for all of their support and prayers. It is my continued honor to serve our community.
