Background Chair of the Travis County Libertarian Party. Political Director for the Libertarian Party of Texas. Candidate for Travis County Sheriff in 2016.
Education University of Texas B.A. Government
I believe it is the duty of the Justice of the Peace to represent all people in their District. They need to have the courage to recognize and rectify an injustice brought before them. Just because something is a law, does not make it just. I have the courage to make that distinction when necessary and to rule accordingly. One does not need a law degree or to serve as a lawyer to understand what is just and to represent their District accordingly.
As limited and efficient as possible. The Justice of the Peace is there to serve the people, not be a large tax burden with inflated costs due to inefficiency. Administrative costs should be streamlined and kept to a minimum. Taxpayers have no choice in their money being taken from them, but they have a right to see that the money is spent correctly and no more is taken from them than is necessary.
I will streamline administrative duties and cut waste where ever it exists. I will not waste time tying up the court, and will ensure the Constables are aware of the level of discretion I expect of them. I will not waste tax payer money on hearings of victimless crimes.
