I am running for Justice of the Peace, Brazos County, Precinct 4. My passion to serve my family, friends and my community is what I live for and my values are carried out through hard work and an eagerness to serve others. Some may be curious as to why I want to run for office, and the answer is simple; I want to personally invest in my community through public service.
I want an open court, accessible and approachable to all members of the community. It is important that we elect a JP willing to work with other Brazos County judges, as well as someone who is consistent with the ideals, fine amounts, and duties of the court. I am committed to being the principled team player Precinct 4 needs. Lastly, no matter your race, religion, ethnicity, occupation, or native language – you WILL be treated fairly and equally in my court. I am committed to being a judge for everyone in our community, not just a chosen few.
People often ask me: Are you running as a Republican or as a Democrat? I am running for the good of all people. Black, White, Hispanic, Asian American, Red, Blue - I am a person of character who sees the same in others. If our world would set aside labels and political parties and look at people for who they are, we would be in a much better place. I am here to lift people up and to make a difference!
Not only does my life experiences qualify me to be a Justice of the Peace but my professional experience does too. I have managed million-dollar multifamily properties all over Bryan College Station. I have balanced 40+ million-dollar budgets and managed up to 30 staff members. I have the personal grit and professional experience to make the precinct 4 court something Brazos County can be proud of.
I am currently a Regional Supervisor for the 4th largest property management company in the continental US, Asset Living.
I attended Blinn College and Sam Houston State University. In September of 2012, I tragically lost my mother in a Domestic Violence situation, leaving me to be my sister’s legal guardian. In the wake of my mother’s death, I founded Angie’s Awareness Angels to raise awareness about domestic violence and to also raise funds for local women’s shelters. During Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, I am frequently called upon as a speaker for law enforcement officers and high school students discussing intimate partner violence. In addition to sharing my mother’s story, I discuss teen dating with students and advocacy for victims with officers.
My core has always been family first which is why I decided to leave college prior to graduation so I could provide for my younger sister Porsha. I am a proud father to my daughter Kenzlee who is in first grade at Bryan ISD.
As your Justice of the Peace, I promise to have compassion while using sound judgment and common sense on each and every case that comes before me. I commit to following the law, being practical, while applying common sense - knowing that I will make an impact on that person’s life. I also want to make the JP office accessible to the community and local law enforcement agencies. I will be available to Brazos County.
It is my absolute honor to run for this office and I vow to run with integrity as I represent the good people of Brazos County. I look forward to serving the constituents for Precinct 4 as your next Justice of the Peace!
