For the last 15 years, I’ve worked as your Prosecutor to make Platte County the safest place in the metro to raise your family.  I will continue to represent the common sense, conservative family values that make Platte County great.


Committed Conservative

My conservative values are the cornerstone of everything I do. Our community and our families are stronger when we defend life and freedom together.

Proven Prosecutor

Every time I’ve charged a murderer, I’ve sent that person to prison for decades. And I’ve thrown the book at thousands of repeat, violent, and sex offenders. My record of standing up for our families has often angered criminal defense lawyers, but I wasn’t elected to represent them. I was elected to represent the people of Platte County.

Voice for Victims

I’m a career prosecutor, and I’ve always put crime victims – especially our children – first. I’m proud that people know I have a protect-the-citizens-first attitude that local lawbreakers have grown to fear. [Kansas City Star, 8/3/2014] I have fought for stiffer penalties for sex offenders – including writing the Missouri constitutional amendment in 2014 to allow prosecutors to tell jurors the full truth about the criminal history of child predators.
