Williamson County Attorney

Why are you running for office?
Why do you feel it’s important to do so as a Democrat?

The County Attorney’s office desperately needs a change. The Republican incumbent’s focus on harsh punishment and convictions does not do justice or benefit our community. The Democratic ideals of creating help to put citizens accused back on track is long overdue.

What are your qualifications?

I have practiced criminal law for the past 12 years in Williamson County throughout the State, and have served in leadership roles in our community throughout my career. I have experience working with the County Attorney’s office and am keenly aware of the issues desperately needing change.

What do you hope to accomplish if elected?

I hope to bring efficiency and reason to the office of County Attorney. My focus is community safety, youth outreach, and the development of programs and policies that save our Williamson County taxpayer dollars by focusing on delivering services to reduce recidivism.

Why should voters choose you in the Democratic Primary?

I am not a politician. I am a citizen, lawyer, and woman who has seen firsthand the inequalities, injustice, inefficiency, and intolerance of the Republican punitive policies and I intend to create meaningful change for all citizens of Williamson County.
