MY PROMISE TO YOU
"I have dedicated my entire legal career to public service, not profit. I believe in justice and the truth. I promise that if I earn your vote as your District Judge, I will faithfully follow the law and not legislate from the bench. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights will be the foundation of my decisions. I believe in tough sentences for violent criminals and empowerment for victims. I will be fair and respectful to all who come to my Court and dedicate every day to keeping your trust." -- Kristi DeCluitt
