Hello! First and foremost, I want to be abundantly clear that I am currently not a judge, but I want to be YOUR judge for North Mesa.
I initially ran for Justice of the Peace 28 years ago, in 1992. Since then, many of you have gotten to know me because of my campaigning every four years door-to-door throughout the entire precinct on my mountain bike. Hence, “Judge on Wheels”.
But wait, there’s more! If I’m fortunate enough to be elected YOUR Justice of the Peace, one of the duties I would look forward to would be marrying people. Some of my greatest joy in this world comes from backpacking and fly fishing in wilderness areas. If elected, I’ll look forward to making myself available to perform weddings for people in out-of-the-way places.
Again, YOUR “Judge On Wheels”!
Most of you know me as Constable Ed – “The GOOD GUY ON THE BIKE”. I’ve been the Republican Constable of the North Mesa Justice Court for 15 years, and I’m running for Justice of the Peace in North Mesa, Arizona. I would be honored to have your vote on August 4, 2020.
I hope you never need to use the services of your local justice court, but if you do, it’s important to have good people there. As a Constable, the majority of what I do is evictions from rental properties in our community. I also serve protective orders and various papers for people to attend court. I may sometimes seize property but only with a court order.
• Petty offenses and misdemeanors.
• Assault or battery — less serious offenses not committed on a public officer while performing his or her duties.
• Breaches of peace and committing a willful injury to property.
• Misdemeanors and criminal offenses punishable by fines not more than $2,500, imprisonment in county jail not to exceed six months, or both fine and imprisonment.
