There are so many qualities that I feel are equally important but I believe that being passionate about the job and our community stands out to me. Trying to teach our youth to make better decisions in life, helping individuals and families in crisis that are dealing with mental health issues or drug abuse is just as important to me as knowing the law and procedures in the court.
A judge must remain neutral and unbiased in all matters before the court. A judge must recuse themselves from cases involving family, friends, business associates etc to avoid the appearance of bias and favoritism. It is a necessary process to show neutrality in the justice system.
