What will be your top three priorities if elected justice of the peace and what steps will you take to achieve those goals?
Our legal system needs to be based on the principle that an independent, fair and competent judiciary will interpret and apply the laws that govern us. As a judge, I will apply the facts and law for the resolution of dispute. I will individually and collectively respect and honor the judicial office as a public trust and strive to enhance and maintain confidence in our legal system.
My goal is to make the whole judicial process work for all citizens, as well as for members of the law enforcement community. I possess a unique insight into the experiences of members of the business community, the law enforcement community, Juvenile system and issues that impact parents.
I will make myself available to law enforcement to sign warrants and look over affidavits and to the citizens who have questions. I am approachable and will listen to what you have to say.
How can court efficiency or other areas of court operations be improved and what are your plans to do so if elected?
I will take a look at how the traffic court process is done and if there is some way that I would be able to have traffic court at least three-to-four times a month so that the citizens do not have to waste their entire day waiting to discuss the citation(s) received. I like efficiency and organization, if the citizens have to take off work a full day to be in court then they are losing money.
Having been a small business owner, I have a unique insight into the challenges of owning and operating a small business. I am also business-orientated with management, supervising and budgeting skills. I understand how difficult it can be when you’re owed money and need it to make payroll or pay the electric, this is where I can help get cases into the court so the small business owner can see results faster.
