Holbrook Democrat Evelyn Marez is seeking re-election as Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1.
“I am proud to have served as your Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1 since 2011. You entrusted me with ensuring that justice is well served, and that everyone is treated fairly and respectfully. I take this very seriously and believe I have proven worthy of that trust,” said Marez.
“This year I was honored to be elected as presiding judge of the Navajo County Justice Courts. This honor was given to me by my ‘co-judges’ of the justice courts in Navajo County (Holbrook, Winslow, Kayenta, Snowflake, Show Low and Pinetop.)
“The Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice also appointed me to serve on the Arizona Commission on Victims in the Courts, and I am currently serving my second term. I work diligently to represent the Navajo County judges in this position.
“This court is very busy, as Holbrook is the county seat and encompasses a long stretch of Interstate 40. It has ranked highest in Navajo County of total cases filed. I welcome you to drop by anytime to view court proceedings; Tuesday and Wednesday mornings are the busiest calendar days.
“I was born in Holbrook and have lived here all of my life. My parents, the late, Lorenzo and Vivian Garcia, moved here from Belen, N.M., in 1954. I am the youngest of seven siblings, four brothers and two sisters. I have been married to Mannie for 35 years. We raised two daughters, Reanna and Leah, in the Holbrook schools, where we both attended. Reanna and her husband have two children, Alexa and Logan, and reside in San Tan. Leah resides in Gilbert.
“I am humbled by the overwhelming support I have received from the citizens of this precinct. I look forward to serving another term as your justice of the peace, and appreciate your vote on Tuesday, Aug. 26.”
