I was born in 1961 at Boone County Hospital to Laura Pace Crane, a librarian, and Thomas E. Crane, a rural letter carrier. I graduated from Rockbridge High School and then attended MU and MU Law School, graduating in 1987. I’m married to Lesley, and together we have four children and two stepchildren.
Assistant Attorney General 1987 to 1990. Assistant Boone County Prosecutor, 1990. Boone County Prosecutor, 1993-2007. Presiding Judge 13th Judicial Circuit (Boone and Callaway Counties), 2007 to present.

I can handle one cup of black coffee, but only in the afternoon.
It’s spent either with my wife at the farm or trying to figure out a reason to get up there.
I’m the only choice you’ve got for Division 3.
If re-elected, I’ll continue to be fair and follow the law and common sense in my rulings whether it’s a small business or big business.
