Why do you want to serve in this position?

My work experience and work ethic demonstrate that I possess the competence, good judgment and abilities to be a fair justice of the peace. I started working at a young age as a deckhand; now, I can proudly call myself an accomplished business owner.

Office Seeking: Justice of the Peace Precinct 4, Calhoun County

Why do you want to serve in this position?

During my career, I have always had an interest in the courts. You not only work toward public safety but also have the potential to guide people down the right path, which is rewarding.

What qualifies you to serve in this office?

I believe that my 10 years in law enforcement, including working contract services for the Federal Protection Agency, and my interactions with all courts makes me an asset to the office.

If elected, how will you go about effectively serving your constituents?

There's a set of guidelines set by the state that must be followed. The potential for helping the community is there, and I proved that while serving three consecutive terms on the Seadrift City Council. It's been evident that I'm willing to work to solve the problems of the community. Most of the citizens know that I have worked hard to be a voice for everyone.
