I have 16 years fulltime law enforcement experience. In these 16 years I have been directly involved in multiple Justice of the Peace court cases. Knowledge of the law is what makes a court operate fairly, efficiently and effectively, especially in a people’s court where many parties are unrepresented. The judge needs knowledge of the law and an understanding of how to apply the law to the facts.
My top three priorities are first running a fair court where justice can prevail. Second operating the court with transparency and third working with my fellow Justices of the Peace, law enforcement and parities to make the JP court as efficient and effective as possible. Having an efficient court will limit the amount of time spent by the students, peace officers, attorneys and families in court.
My first priority upon taking office will be to meet with the other Justices of the Peace and divide the case load. I feel that is the most pressing problem. I want all cases placed on the docket in a timely manner so that we can offer the parties a fair disposition as promptly as possible.

The qualifications that I have for the position of Justice of the Peace are that I obtained a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice in February of 2017. 1 also am now currently employed through the Gillespie County Attorney's Office. I have been employed through them for almost five years. By working there, I have gained some knowledge of how the court system works and of some laws. I am fluent in Spanish and English.
The most important duties and responsibilities of the Justice of the Peace are working with minor misdemeanor cases,civil cases and making sure justice is served. The Justice of the Peace have to magistrate and conduct inquests as well.They have many more duties and responsibilities that I think I would be able to accomplish by getting them done well. My priority is to serve the community and make sure Justice is handled correctly.
I believe some of the pressing problems facing this office is maybe due to not enough Justice of the Peace then some cases are being held and not being taken care of in a t timely manner. For example,if the Justice of the Peace are in court or doing other cases I could be doing magistrate in jails or inquests or anywhere else the help might be needed.That way most problems are solved.
