continued What experience do you bring to the position that will be beneficial to the community?
My most relevant experience has come from dealing with the public through both my job as a Town Council person and as a prior business owner. I will have to attend judicial training just like all new Town Justices have to do, and I will take every opportunity given to me to continue my education to stay up to date on all laws and procedures. I can honestly tell you that I do have experience listening to people that have issues, whether it is at a town board level or a work related. I have always been able to listen to both sides and help to make a decision. I feel that I am able to make educated and rational decisions while maintaining a professional composure, which will be needed to judge cases that come before me.
What is the most pressing need for the town, and how do you feel you can help meet that need?
The town judge position is very important to all the residents in the town due to the revenue it generates. In order to make the most revenue the judge has to be available, able to work with people, and have the ability to handle a very busy workload. I feel that I am capable of handling all tasks headed my way. With your support I will be able to prove to you that I am the best candidate for this position, and look forward to serving as your next Town Justice.
