I want to especially thank Peg Liedke, Warren Vavra, Jacob Stokes, Mark Erwin, Amanda Michael, Lorraine Elzia, Lauri Roberts, Brent McCabe, Mary Jane Lawson and LaSonya Thomas for the extraordinary assistance each of them provided me during my tenure. I offer special thanks to my judicial colleagues for their confidence in me and support of me over the past eight year. Onward toward justice!”
