Protecting Our Rights
David leads with strong conservative values and is committed to upholding the constitution as our Founding Fathers intended.
Dedicated to the Rule of Law
As a tough, fair conservative, David believes a judge’s role is never to act as a policy maker, but to always enforce the rule of law while treating individuals with respect.
Upholding Law & Order
Now more than ever, we need leaders who will hold criminals accountable and David is dedicated to fighting against crime to secure our safety.
Supporting the Separation of Powers
David strongly believes in separation of powers and the concept of judicial restraint. He will not legislate from the bench.
