Statement from Kent
"The fundamental purpose of this probate judge is to hear child abuse, child neglect, and delinquency cases. In hearing these cases, the judge must first presume each person innocent; after hearing evidence he must then guard the individual freedoms of all those that appear before him. When he finds that a child has been neglected or abused, he must take steps to help the family correct their issues. In some cases he must determine that parents should lose their rights concerning the child. If a child has broken a law, he must then determine the appropriate punishment, as well as any remedy to help prevent the child from repeating the offense. I am the candidate who has experience doing this." -Kent E. Greenfelder
