On May 24, 2022, I received the highest number of votes in Gwinnett County to replace the retiring Judge Pam South. However, despite receiving over 42% of the vote, I did not avoid a runoff. Therefore, I need your vote again Tuesday June 21, 2022! I have been endorsed by candidates all over the political spectrum, including Representative Gregg Kennard (Democrat Lawrenceville) and Representative Chuck Efstration (Republican Dacula) to name a few. Early voting runs from Saturday June 11, 2022 to Friday June 17, 2022. Early voting can be done at all Gwinnett County Early Voting Locations. To find a location, click here:
