Support Judge Mario Perez


Monday, October 8, 2018

I've had the honor of living in Pitt County and serving its residents for over 10 years as an attorney, primarily practicing family law. While I believe this to be the fifth judicial election I've observed in this county, it is the first that I've ever supported a candidate publicly.

I have supported Judge Mario Perez since the day I learned he was seeking appointment to what was Judge Hilburn's seat, since our local attorneys overwhelmingly voted for him to take this position, since Gov. Cooper appointed him, and every day since.

I am publicly supporting Judge Perez because he is so incredibly qualified for this position and even more so because he is so much more qualified than his opposition. He has been an exceptional attorney in this county for decades, representing his clients in just about every area of the law that in District and Superior Court.

Judge Perez represented his clients with zeal and honor when he handled criminal, family, child support, juvenile delinquency and other specialized matters at the Pitt County Courthouse.

I've had the pleasure of litigating in Judge Perez's court since he was sworn to his position earlier this year, and every time, I have observed him exhibit knowledge of the law, respect for attorneys and parties before him, wisdom to make just decisions, and humility.

The citizens of Pitt County have been so well served by Judge Perez as an attorney and now as a District Court judge, and we will continue to benefit from Judge Perez. There is only one man running who is fit to be elected for this position, and it is the man currently wearing the black robe. 

Every person in this county needs to get out and vote to keep Judge Mario Perez exactly where he is.

As a 20-year citizen of the town of Grifton, I want to personally thank the staff of The Daily Reflector for being a voice for the people of Grifton as well as others in the area affected by the low-lying location in which Duke Energy chose for its electric substation.

I hope and pray with the…

This year as many voters go to the polls to elect officials, we search for criteria to validate our vote. What qualities should we value most and which candidates possess those qualities? Scripture provides timeless qualities in Deuteronomy 1:13, “Choose wise, understanding and…

Ah, the Republicans. In 1987, Ronald Reagan promptly withdrew Douglas Ginsburg’s Supreme Court nomination merely because he had smoked pot as a young man.

But no such problem for Brett Kavanaugh. Instead, our presidential “p.... grabber in chief” regaled his unhinged base by…

I just could not let the recent back-to-back letters using Christ and God references in support of Kavanaugh and the Republicans slide by. 

As for Kavanaugh, he flatly stated that the devil's triangle he referred to is a drinking game. It is not, it is a three-way sex act. He said that boofing…

America is experiencing some extremely polarizing times. No matter if you are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or independent, the only things that our various political parties seem to be able to agree on is that they can’t seem to agree on anything. This has left so many individuals…
