Platform: "Nevada law establishes the position of Douglas County Public Administrator to administer the estates of certain deceased persons. In Douglas County, the Public Administrator is also the Public Guardian who may be appointed as the guardian of certain qualifying individuals. As the average age of the general population of Douglas County continues to rise, there is an increasing demand for the services of a qualified Public Administrator/Guardian with experience in working with the judicial and law enforcement communities. I will use my experience as a Judge pro tem and reserve deputy sheriff, together with my education and business background, to work hard for the citizens of Douglas County and comply fully with the requirements of Nevada law to meet the demands of the local residents who will benefit from my services."
