Impartial adherence to the law. Judges must not make law from the bench, but instead ensure that they apply the law to the facts of each case and render a reasoned and fair decision. With more than three decades of broad-based legal experience — more than any other Republican running for this position — I have treated all parties with respect, which is how I earned the highest ethical rating from a national attorney review program. Focusing on the law and carrying these ethics and a commitment to ensuring a fair and impartial hearing to all will be my top priority.

EDWARD FOSTER

My knowledge and determination make me the best candidate. From starting a business, selling/investing in real estate and coaching sports, I am driven to work hard and help others. I have contributed my time and resources to local organizations.

I supported investors in court, introduced legislation and used the judicial branch to stand up for others and myself. I have been a victim of crime, a prosecutor of crime and assisted police in fighting crime.
