I am deeply honored and humbled by the confidence the people of Montana have shown in me. And I am inspired by the voters' decision to support an independent, non-partisan judiciary that assures everyone a level playing field.
I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the many dozens of people across the state who gave so generously of their time, their hard-earned dollars and their life energy to help this campaign succeed. And thank you to everyone who voted for me in the election.
I will bring to work the values important to our court system: integrity, fairness, hard work, common sense and an open mind. I will give full attention to every case and fair treatment to every party.
It has been a privilege for me to run for this office, and it will be an honor to serve all Montana as your next Supreme Court Justice.
