Why are you the best candidate for the position?
A. I worked for NASA for 14 years and trained Apollo astronauts who were highly skilled and dedicated individuals. I came away from that experience with an incessant drive for perfection, detail, accuracy and organization. I worked hundreds of volunteer hours to help put a man on the moon. I will bring these skills and this work ethic with me as justice of the peace.
B. After the Apollo program, I managed the collection and organization of software requirements for the operations software to be tested in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory (SAIL). I will bring these management and project development skills with me as justice of the peace.
C. After NASA I became an attorney in 1981 and became board certified in personal injury trial law in 1989. With the encouragement and backing of my wife, I worked almost 24/7 for several years to build a law practice and become the managing partner of Suchocki, Bullard & Cummings.
In the last 32 years, I have tried cases in many counties throughout the state, including cases in federal courts, district courts, county courts and justice of the peace courts and have appeared before many different judges. I will bring these management skills and 32 years of legal knowledge and trial experience with me as justice of the peace, along with a commitment to be fair and impartial and to follow the law and be reasonable in assessing judgments.
D. I have three cases left that will be resolved within the next several months. As such, I will not have an independent practice when I am elected justice of the peace. I will be a full-time judge and I am committed to a motto that I developed as a young man with NASA and a motto that I am passing on to my grandchildren: “No matter how big or small the task, do it better than it has ever been done before.”
