MEET THE CANDIDATE: Pct. 3 Justice of the Peace candidate Jerry Hataway


Whoever is elected to this office has to realize that this is not an eight-to-five job. Precinct Three is a very busy court. The demands for services are huge and growing, placing strains on the court’s ability to provide swift resolution of cases. Our new judge must have a strong work ethic to keep up with this demand. I will be available to address time restraints that affect not only our citizens, but attorneys, law enforcement and the professional staff. I will insist each of these stakeholders have access to my court and to the efficient justice that we are entitled to.

Why are you the best candidate for the position?

I do feel I am the best person for this office, not just because of my professional and personal experience, but also, more importantly, on my determination to succeed.

I have succeeded in every position in every job I have held and I have been recognized many times for my accomplishments, work ethic and enthusiasm.

I am more than confident that I would be welcomed to return to any organization I have worked for in the past. What separates me from many others is that I will not fail. I will do what ever it takes to make Precinct Three’s Justice of the Peace Court the model of achievement and effective court procedures.

In order to become successful in any task, I believe that you must first examine history and other models or institutions involved in that same task. An administrator must not attempt to “re-invent the wheel.” There are many current and past Judges who have excelled in their profession. We must build upon their successes and continue to strive to explore new opportunities.
