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.

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

It's official. We just had the longest government shutdown in history over nothing.

Democrats have agreed to fund $1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barrier along the border, which is only a little more than what Trump would have gotten under a continuing resolution that funded the government…

Title IX has been a positive thing except where men's programs have been canceled to create slots for women. You can call it Title IX "balance," but ECU has 11 women's sports and only nine for men. To create this disparity ECU added women's lacrosse. Last time I checked, the state of North Carolina…

From Lake Norman to the Outer Banks, boating has long been a cherished pastime for many families across North Carolina.

Yet while many are familiar with the personal benefits you experience during a day on the water, the important economic contributions of boating are lesser-known.

Recently Courtney Patterson, a state NAACP leader, told a Greenville audience that the gains made by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 are in jeopardy. He encouraged Americans to be vigilant in protecting these rights and to exercise the privilege of voting.

I am tired of Democratic presidential hopefuls and their clean energy nonsense. Windmills and solar panels are generally a waste of time and money. Windmills don’t turn when there is no wind and solar panels don’t work when there is no sun. In each case the energy generated is DC, for…

If the legislature adopts the Carolina Cares plan advocated by Rep. Greg Murphy, hundreds of thousands of people will still be showing up at our hospitals without coverage, giving the hospitals the excuse to pad what they charge the rest of us in order to pay for treatment for the uncovered.…
