Why I'm running for district judge
I believe there are precious few places in our country where the law and facts still matter and where each person is treated with equal dignity before the law. My courtroom will be one of those places.
There’s no changing the fact that half of all people who enter a courtroom will walk out feeling upset or disappointed. But we can change our judicial system so that every person — regardless of their station in life — leaves feeling the judge was impartial, carefully considered all aspects of the case, and truly gave them a chance to be heard.
"With her vast knowledge of the law and her many years of courtroom experience, Mackenzie will be ready on day one to serve as Magisterial District Judge."
