Village Justice Thanks Voters 

I want to thank those who supported me during the last village election for justice.  I have now served a total of 20 years with four more ahead. My focus over those past years has been to establish a model court. We have accomplished that and will endeavor to build on that record. But at the same time, the simple problems that we face in our village court are often caused by problems beyond our control such as the national recession.

It is important at all levels of government for those in office to show how these international, national and regional problems have an impact on local government and even in our courts. It is here at the local level that the real life drama plays out.  This is the new calling for us as elected officials, recognizing our connection to the problems faced at all levels of government but also by society as a whole.  Working together to find solutions that will benefit all is the new mission for everyone.

I also want to take this opportunity to invite all of you to the swearing in ceremony at the village’s organizational meeting at 7:30 p.m., April 4 at Village Hall.
