A pro-life mother’s perspective on Judge Edna Staudt

“A charge frequently leveled at pro-life supporters is that we fight for the pre-born and then forget about them afterwards. Let me introduce you to Judge Edna Staudt, who epitomizes pro-life follow-thru.

 

“Judge Staudt has served as the Williamson County Justice of the Peace for over 23 years. Not only is Judge Staudt a tireless defender of the pre-born, she is a tireless advocate for teens here in Williamson County.

 

“When Judge Staudt founded YMCA Teen Court 22 years ago, her purpose was two-fold.

 

“First, it gave young people in Williamson County an opportunity to learn about our justice through hands-on participation. At Teen Court, young men and women learn the art of jury deliberation as actual jurors. They also learn the roles and serve as court clerks and bailiffs. Once they have demonstrated proficiency in those positions, these young leaders earn the opportunity to train and try out for roles of prosecuting and defending attorneys. Experienced student attorneys are allowed to train and try out to serve as the actual Judge, presiding over sentencing deliberations in very real, Class C misdemeanor cases involving juvenile defendants.

 

“Second, Teen Court grants a second chance to real-life teen defendants. These juvenile defendants who have had actual court proceedings with Judge Staudt may then have their real case adjudicated tried in Teen Court, with a real, binding consequence handed in by the jury. Defendants who complete the sentence may and then have their fine waived or reduced and their record cleared. What a wonderful example of both justice and mercy! This is exactly what citizens should expect from their justice system.

 

“As a mother whose children have participated in Teen Court and as a voter in Williamson County, I am very, very pleased with how Judge Staudt has performed in her role.

 

“I appeal to you, my fellow voters, make the effort to vote today and re-elect┬áJudge Edna Staudt, the only Republican Primary candidate who shares our values.” – ┬áNoel Adams

Judge Staudt teams with law enforcement to impact young leaders

“Judge Edna Staudt made a great impact on my life by introducing me to the American justice system and allowing me to play an active role in it through the Williamson County YMCA Teen Court program.

 

“I was a high school student at the time and had no experience with law enforcement or the court system outside of mock trials in which I had participated.┬á Judge Staudt helped train me and a large number of other young people in what it means to sit on a jury, to interview a defendant as their attorney, and to even serve as the presiding judge in sentencing of juvenile defendants who have plead guilty or no-contendere to real Class C misdemeanors.

 

“However, the most important aspect of this program for me was when Judge Staudt invited members of law enforcement to speak to us about their responsibilities to the community and the impact their experiences have had on them.┬á I’ll never forget hearing a Williamson County Sheriff’s deputy talk about the challenges he’d faced as an officer of the law and how important it became for him to learn communication skillsÔÇŽ skills that would de-escalate a potentially dangerous situation into a non-violent resolution┬áwithout harm to either party, allowing the officer to return safely home to his family at night.

 

“Judge Staudt helped shape me into a better citizen. She has a passion for upholding the law and ensuring future generations are equipped to do the same.” Daniel Monroe, Former Student Volunteer┬á

Williamson County Republican Leaders endorse Judge Edna Staudt

The conservative Williamson County Republican Leaders is the only Republican organization in Williamson county that makes endorsements. The Monday night endorsement meeting required a 2/3 or greater vote of the membership for a candidate to receive the WCRL’s support.

The WCRL voted to endorse Judge Edna Staudt in her re-election to Williamson County Justice of the Peace, Precinct 2.

“There is probably no elected official in Precinct 2 that has a more established record of achievement than does Judge Staudt. Her teen court is a model throughout Texas. She understands Precinct 2 like no one else. It is unimaginable to think of supporting anyone other than Justice of the Peace Edna Staudt.”

Mike McCloskey, Senate District 5, State Republican Executive Committee

 

“When I wanted to get actively involved in choosing our leaders, I worked diligently with the Party that held my values; The Right to life at all stages, the Right to bear arms, the Right to educate and raise my children according to Biblical principals.
I got actively involved in fighting to keep those rights in 1982 and have not stopped, nor will I. The cost of freedom is vigilance. Thank you Williamson County Republican Leaders club for your endorsement.”

A Judge for Life

A judge who respects and values the sanctity of life at every stage and circumstance is more inclined to respect and value an individual’s rights and property at every stage and circumstance.

 

Judge Staudt is a staunch, outspoken advocate for those who have no voice: the unborn, the disabled, the infirmed, and those who find themselves in overwhelming circumstances. Should you find yourself before her court, you can take great confidence that you, your individual rights and your property will be treated fairly and with the utmost respect.

 

Judge Staudt’s long-standing commitment to valuing human life has the respect of pro-life organizations, including Texas Alliance for Life, and those laboring sacrificially on behalf of those in our midst considered “the least of these”.

Reason #2 to re-elect Judge Staudt

“Coming from the great advice from a dear friend, Judge Edna Staudt, we attended a Parenting Teen Workshop today. The information is priceless. Every parent can use this information….I mean teens donÔÇÖt come with manuals…no kid does.

 

We have attended many parenting classes over the years and they have always been helpful, but never for teens. Stacey Jeannett is amazing with her experience and teaching.┬á Judge Staudt has continually strived to meet the needs of the people she comes into contact with in the courtroom. ┬áHer programs have changed lives and enhanced our community.”┬áSharlene Aiken

Reason #3 to re-elect Judge Edna Staudt, a Constitution JP

Judge StaudtÔÇÖs reputation “for being tough but fair” earned her the respect of law enforcement* and ordinary citizens alike. She equally respects those who daily put their lives on the line to preserve your peace, the rule of law, and your rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

 

Judge Staudt will continue her intense, unrelenting┬áfight to eliminate unjust programs that kick citizens when they are down. One of those is the mis-named and unjust ÔÇťTexas Driver Responsibility ProgramÔÇŁ. This scheme was hatched and passed by the Texas Legislature in 2003. Even its lead author, former Representative Mike Krusee, has stated, ÔÇťI think itÔÇÖs past time to either revise or repeal the program.ÔÇŁ

 

Judge Staudt publicly called out this tyranny for what it is: ÔÇťThe main problem with this program is the withdrawal of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness which is the purpose of government. The role of government is to ensure everyone has those liberties.ÔÇŁ

Reason #5 to re-elect Judge Staudt: A heart for our community

“Judge Staudt has a heart for teens, and for the community as a whole to grow through confronting our failures and mistakes. She has shown this for years through her support of Teen Court and her care for the community in general.

 

I have personally seen her invest in youth in order to introduce them to the justice system, as well as offer minors a chance to have a clean criminal record through facing their wrong choices in Teen Court, in front of individuals their age.

 

She is a wise choice for this position, because she will not only uphold the constitution and fight for fairness, but she will personally work hard to effect true change in individuals.” – Laura Peisker, Former Student Volunteer
