For Justice of the Peace Pct. 7, Place.2
“I Strive to Serve the People humbly.”
“DC” Caldwell is a graduating TSU law student running for Harris County Precinct 7 Justice of the Peace who acknowledges he will need a miracle to win this race. However, with divine help, miracles do happen.
DC’s reasons for campaigning as Justice of the Peace are because he cares strongly that hearts and minds in Precinct 7 should not be given up as lost causes…. He is appalled that the last real general election for Precinct 7 JP was in 1996. DC determined to run as a matter of principle, because somebody should do it, so he filed himself.
DC invites voters to read on a JP’s role in protecting individual rights and “policing the police.” His name means, “God is my Judge,” and he tries to judge the same–looking for the good.
At Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law, DC is the 3L Class of 2019 Sergeant at Arms, and he will be done with Juris Doctor degree classroom courses in December. As a former military ROTC cadet at Texas A&M University, a volunteer in the Texas State Guard, and a clerk with non-profit, government, and social organizations, DC understands from experience the role that strict regulations play in impairing–even handicapping–the ability of individuals, companies, and agencies to fill needs in the society they are intended to protect.
As your servant, DC proposes taking at least the following steps to improve, reducing at least some of the hassle of going to court:
1. Treat the office as the full-time profession it is and not merely as a part-time job.
2. Enhance accessibility of “the People’s Court” by using the Texas’s e-filing system.
3. Implement educational technology tools to more easily display information in court.
4. Literally bring the court closer to the People, moving into vacant ground floor space.
These are just a few of many ways to facilitate organization and service to the community. Greater availability reduces delay to those waiting (“justice delayed is justice denied”) too long to have cases heard, comparing to how we now have a judge who regularly leaves early. Providing accessible options to submit files online and present papers with a document camera on a projector will enable clearer communication. Meanwhile, a first floor location will improve the convenience for anyone entering. DC taught high school math after working in elementary schools with ESL and special needs students, and DC genuinely enjoys helping others learn and grow to reach SMART goals.
DC’s desires to make a positive difference makes him the better of 2 candidates for judge here. When asked what she will do different than her mother to improve the court, his opponent said, quote, “Not a thing.” (Monday, July 9, 2018). Our courts can readily progress with willing judges.
We hope you will SUPPORT & VOTE “DC” for Justice.
