The Tennessee Judicial Code of Ethics govern the conduct of both Judicial Candidates and Judges. This Code demands professionalism and the treatment of the election process with the highest degree of integrity. This in turn promotes the public’s trust in the judicial system. As a candidate to serve as a trial Judge for the 1st Circuit Court of Davidson County, I am committed to following these unique rules that apply to this process. Being a candidate for judge, even in a contested election which can be highly political, requires a person to act at all times with integrity, independence and impartiality. I promise to abide by this creed in my campaign for 1st Circuit Judge and, if privileged to be elected, when I serve the public as a Judge in this community. I invite all judicial candidates in this race to join me in this pledge as we pursue our respective campaigns.
