LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Readers write to back candidates

Johnson supported for JP4 re-election

Dear Editor,

Lynn Marie Johnson is running for re-election for Justice of Peace, Precinct 4.

As residents of Willow Park since 1992, we are much aware of what goes on in our city and our precinct. We would like to inform the voters of this area why we support Judge Johnson for re-election.

Since Judge Johnson was elected to this position the office has undergone substantial change in her effort to be responsive to the community and to be accountable to the voters. Collections have increased by more than 30 percent, security and technology have been upgraded, a website has gone online, the backlog of criminal and civil cases has been eliminated and the office is operating under budget.

As longtime residents we can honestly say that Judge Johnson has been the best justice of peace since we have been here. We recommend that all registered voters go to the polls and vote for the re-election of Judge Lynn Marie Johnson.

Sincerely,

W.G. Hale Alderman, Willow Park

Couple backs Riley’s re-election bid

Dear Editor,

We would like to express our support for the re-election of Mark Riley as Parker County Judge.

In our opinion Judge Riley has proved himself to be successful in leading our county in a very positive direction.

He has always stood up for Parker County at the state and national level and helped see that many new roads are now opening for us all to have safe travel.

Judge Riley is a strong supporter of the older adults and less fortunate of Parker County and volunteers his time, talent and means to help with fundraisers and events on their behalf.

We ask our friends and family to please vote for Judge Mark Riley.

Sincerely,

Kenneth and Nadeen Murphree, Weatherford
