What about your non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?
I have partnered with members of our community to develop programs to rehabilitate children. I have a Work Detail Program where children work at the Y to pay restitution. The New Voices Program is a self esteem program for girls. The Program is embraced by the Western Reserve Service League.
