JP Basinger seeks re-election

Announcement

Bobbie Jo Basinger is announcing for re-election for Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace.

In November 1994, I was elected Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace and took office in January 1995.
Since taking office I have participated and initiated - with the cooperation of other justice courts - consistent, efficient policies and procedures for paperwork, reporting and cross training of clerks to ensure continuity of information. The only difference in the basic operation of the court is the judges' discretion. Cooperation and teamwork within all aspects of county government are essential parts of an official's duties.
I am a member of the Texas Justice of the Peace and Constable Association, Texas justice Court Judges Association, American Judges Association and National Judges Association. In addition, I have served on the Texas Association of Counties Employment Board. Since 2006, I have been honored to be a part of the College of Justice Court Judges. I am also a member of the Bandera County Republican Women, as well as other civic and fraternal organizations.
Caseloads for courts continue to rise; legislative changes and legal procedures require a fulltime commitment from our elected officials. I am committed to this office, and to the people who have elected me to provide this responsibility.
One of our duties is justice - "Due process of law states that all citizens be treated equally and fairly." Judges must be impartial, have commonsense, be decisive and know how to apply the law.
I am fair, professional, consistent and have the experience, knowledge and leadership abilities to maintain the integrity of this office.
With your help, I will continue to do so.
