Being the "Peoples Court" and the court most involved with the general public, one of my top priorities will be providing exceptional service to the people and the many Federal, State and Local agencies that have business with the court. Under my Leadership we will strive to make interactions with the court as timely and smooth as possible. Having current on the job experience will allow me to quickly be able to identify areas of improvement and the knowledge of what works and what doesn't.
It seems as if we are at a time in this great country of ours where the Laws and morals of our land are being twisted, warped and flat out disregarded on a daily basis. We are losing our respect for human life, basic dignity, respect for our fellow man and knowing the difference between right & wrong. My conservative up bringing and Christian faith are my back bone when faced with these troubling times and you can rest assured that I will uphold the Laws and our Constitution as written.
Having been working in the JP 2-2 Court for the past six years, it has given me invaluable insight to know that no two cases or people are the same. Everyone has a story and a background that makes them who they are and how they got to be where they are today. Often times a persons interaction with the Justice Court will be a turning point in a persons life. Most times for the better and sometimes for the worse. Being a Justice of the Peace gives a person a big responsibility and burden to be the face of this change. My experience with the thousands of cases that have come across my desk has taught me that not only do you have to be tough and work within our laws, but you also have to have compassion to be able to have true meaningful Justice.
With the population boom predicted within the next decade for Brazoria County, there will most certainly be challenges to continue to provide exceptional public service with the increased demands. Its going to take creative thinking, problem solving skills, knowledge, experience and a forward thinking mindset to be prepared for this increased growth and demands of the Justice Court. I am prepared to work with the other Courts and County Commissioners to identify and seek out solutions to some of the potential bottle necks I have seen during my tenure as a County Employee.
We have all seen in the news that comes out of our neighboring counties were a Judge has given a low bond amount or released on personal recognizance bond to a career , violent criminal based on this dangerous miss interpretation of the new "Justice Reform" mandate by the State. Then, the offender is released back into the public and goes on to commit other crimes and violent acts against other Citizens, Businesses and our Police. This is not Justice and makes our communities less safe. Law & Order must be maintained in our community.
