Presiding over probate matters requires an individual who has the temperament and stability of character to treat all parties fairly and impartially. Guardianship hearings may affect a senior citizen, or a minor child.
Regardless of the age of the proposed ward, a life is impacted by the judge. That decision is not to be taken lightly or with a cavalier attitude.
As county judge I represent the county before state agencies and serve on regional boards. I also have been an invited speaker at an international oil and gas conference and transportation conferences. The county judge must have the ability to build partnerships and provide a vision for solving problems. I have the proven leadership and verifiable record of accomplishments to continue our success.
