I will listen and serve you with equal justice, be impartial and fair. I will treat you with Dignity and Respect. I will have compassion and empathy and support your rights under the law. This is my commitment to you.
PROVEN and RESPECTED LEADER
What's The Bottom Line: WHY VOTE FOR ME?
I am Qualified, Experienced, Respected, and I CARE! I want to HELP and SERVE YOU!
The JP's court is considered the "People's Court." As a working parent, I know how hard it is to take off from work so I plan to hold evening court in addition to day court to provide YOU flexibility.
I will work full-time. You pay my salary and I will not abuse that privilege and waste your tax dollars by treating it like a part-time position.
I plan to create information online to help EXPLAIN and GUIDE you through the court process. I will provide you with on-line forms and instructions to help you complete them before attending court. I want YOU to be well prepared and not overwhelmed by the legal system.
In my court, you will be treated with dignity and respect.
I will serve you with equal justice, be impartial, and fair.
As your Justice of the Peace, I will listen, offer peaceful, personal conflict resolution, and seek preventive measures as punishment over fines in cases to reduce repeated crimes.
Especially when it involves teens who have drug addictions, and are underage drinkers. In many instances, the JP’s court is their first experience with the judicial system. I want their experience to be a positive one rather than a intimidating one.
Attentiveness to teens may deter them from committing harsher crimes, such as mass shootings or other violence acts. Our society has had too many of these instances!
