BYH to the one saying that Democrats don't believe in America's borders. Where do they get this stuff? I've never heard...

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.

The Orange County Register got it right, and thank you Daily Reflector for including it in your Other Voices column.

“For too long, Congress has abdicated its constitutional obligations with respect to war powers.” Did you know the U.S. military is currently deployed and combat ready in…

My sincere thanks to the George H.W. Bush family for giving us all a chance to remember what America is all about. 

The patriatism, the integrity and the honesty was a refreshing reminder of what I value in my country. The kind, respectful and humorous words were a pleasure to hear.

Maybe I or the Reflector got this wrong: $20 million assigned for athletic deficit and facilities; $10 million of that from a $95 million ECU Physicians accrued fund balance. It is to be spent because attendance is down at athletic events and the athletes need a special place to eat. I hope I or…

Donald Bryson, Civitas Institute president, has it all wrong in his “Stop the government takeover of health care,” piece in The Daily Reflector on Nov. 29. Most of the world’s industrial countries whose health care systems are government run have healthier populations than the U.S.…

In this season of hope, love and renewal, someone representing us, America The Beautiful, tear-gassed a pregnant woman and her children at our border. Others were gassed too.

From the perspective of the agent, there might have been a provocation for the gassing. Perhaps he perceived a threat,…

Pipelines are far and away the safest way to move energy, far safer than alternative means. And the state could receive more than $2.5 billion in tax revenues from offshore leasing, per a recent analysis, in turn helping families.

Yet those who decry energy or cheer when a pipeline permit is…

Reasonable people differ. I learned the truth of this back in the day when I was a student at the finest law school in all of Washtenaw County. The late renowned Whitmore Gray taught it to us in our Contracts course. He also taught us to never indulge in ad hominem commentary pertaining to folks…

America has 23,648 military personnel in the proximity of the demilitarized zone in Korea. Why?

North Korea has not crashed our southern border. North Koreans are not throwing rocks and bottles at our border agents, many who are hispanic. They are not overwhelming our schools, hospitals and social…

I have been wanting to write this letter for some time. Just about every doctor in rural America that I have known practices psychiatry to some extent with their patients every day.

Unfortunately the only way to determine with any certainty that a patient is truly psychotic and therefore a danger…

In a recent letter, James H. Dautremont (Public Forum, Nov. 21) makes two outrageous claims: Israel is the reason the U.S. chooses to ignore Saudi government complicity in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and the current wave of antisemitism in our country is a response to a misalignment of…
