Hello my name is Sam Ortiz.
I am running for Justice of the Peace for Pct. 5
Justice of the Peace is the judge who handles misdemeanor crimes, minor traffic violations, truancy charges, eviction, and handles marriages.
As a Justice, I want to bring a common-sense approach to enforcing the law. People should not be sent to jail over unpaid court fines. We need to start treating people like people, and not just a source of revenue.
