We in Precinct 2 are extremely fortunate to have an individual of the quality and competence of the current Justice of the Peace Mary Tom Cravens. We have been told that she handles the staff and the somewhat enormous number of cases per day in an efficient and extremely competent manner.

That would support the understanding of her character by those of us who have known her all her life. She has excelled in every endeavor into which she has ventured and she continues to amaze us with her success.

One cannot find a more pleasant, yet definitive, individual who handles both the good and the bad with an even demeanor. Her family’s multi-generational commitment to community service is longstanding and exceptional, and our community is very fortunate to have this generation willing to serve with such distinction.

I heartily request Precinct 2 voters to retain Justice of the Peace Mary Tom Cravens.

— Ralph Shelton, Arlington
