Ned Depew - Candidate for Town Justice

A Town Justice must listen closely, think clearly and respond fairly. It's not merely a question of who “wins” or “loses” on a point of law, but that those who appear before the court leave recognizing that they have received a fair and complete hearing of their case, and that the judgment has been based on the merits of the case, explained in such a way that they understand the application of the law to their particular case.

Without being able to serve the needs of everyone who appears in court, no matter what their status, a judge cannot fulfill his obligation to the Constitution that guarantees “liberty and justice for all.”
