I was honored to participate in the Investiture of Judge Grant Jaquith and Judge Scott Laurer in Washington DC and offer the benediction for the ceremony. Judge Jaquith was selected to serve as Court of Appeals judge in 2020. COVID delayed his Investiture.

At the Investiture, I met many great public servants including Chief Judge Margaret Bartley. My appreciation to her for the kind introduction and acknowledging both the work of ALERT and that my wife Brenda Pope Traynham and I did serving as pastors at New Horizons. It was also great reconnecting with former US Attorney for the ND of NY, Richard Hartunian.


Thanks to Judge Grant Jaquith for his kind remarks about me and the work we’re doing at ALERT.


Special thanks to Martin, Harding, and Mazzotti, for sponsoring the trip. Your partnership with ALERT is appreciated.
