Weatherford Democrat

Re-elect Judge Johnson



Dear Editor,

I would like to express my support for re-election of Judge Lynn Marie Johnson as Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4.

I have known Judge Johnson for many years. In addition to her accomplishments while in office, she has served our community well and is very active in it. I have had the pleasure of serving on the Aledo Children’s AdvoCats board for more than eight years and the Project Celebration 2012 board for four years with Judge Johnson.

She is fair, honest, patient and has great integrity. She is able to manage boards and handle conflicts that arise in a diplomatic fashion. I have enjoyed serving with her and have learned from her leadership. She is a true asset to our community.

Please join me in supporting  Judge Johnson and vote for her as Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4.

Thanks,

Rhonda Evers, Aledo



Suchocki supporters

Dear Editor,

My husband, Case, and I and, for that matter, our entire family have know the Suchocki family for many years. We know Bernard to be a dedicated husband, dad and granddad. His integrity and work ethic is beyond reproach.

We have voted for Bernard Suchocki for Justice of the Peace, Pct. 4, and we urge everyone to do so.

They will not be displeased.

Case and Angie Hudson, Aledo



Writer backs Johnson for JP4

Dear Editor,

In the last several years, Judge Lynn Johnson has graciously opened her courtroom doors to Parker County’s Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace office in order to host more than 200 Parker County Teen Court cases.

PCTC is a volunteer program that allows teenage defendants to clear their records of “Class C” misdemeanor offenses. It also allows volunteer students to participate in the judicial system while earning service hours for such clubs as NHS. For example, the students take on the roles of jury, clerk, bailiff and attorneys for all PCTC trials.

Judge Johnson’s contribution to this program had allowed PCTC to grow to more than 45 volunteers participating in PCTC during this school year alone. She has recruited many local attorneys and council members to officiate trials, establishing successful volunteer judges and mentors to the student volunteers learning the trial processes. As well, Judge Johnson had worked with local precincts/courts to establish relationships in which the courts forward cases to be deliberated at PCTC.

Parker County Teen Court is a tremendously successful program largely due to Judge Lynn Johnson’s involvement. I cannot imagine the program without her! Please vote to re-elect Judge Johnson in the coming election to ensure her continuing leadership in PCTC.
