Why Judge Wayne L. Mack Wants to Continue The Service as Your Justice of the Peace
Wayne has been an active Conservative member of the Republican Party since 1992. As a result of his involvement and leadership in the Republican Party as a Precinct Chair since 2000, Election Judge, Area Chair, and with all his involvement with several local non-profit agencies, Wayne has been asked many times to consider seeking public office. However, for many years, Wayne has told everyone that has asked him that the only position he would consider seeking is the office of Justice of the Peace. When asked “Why?” , Wayne states "I believe that as a Justice of the Peace I could go to work every day and leave knowing I made a difference." Since he moved here in 1985, Wayne Mack has lived his life with the desire to make a difference.
Wayne believes in “Servant Leadership”, and he also believes that one of the main reasons that our country has some of the political issues and problems we face today is because as a nation we have stopped electing true servant leaders. "We elect individuals based on what they “say they are going to do” and not on what they “have really done”." "By electing true servant leaders, we can change things". He also believes that a leader should prove they are a true servant leader before they should be asked to lead. Wayne has demonstrated this type of leadership in every organization that he has been asked to serve. Wayne has been asked to serve in these many leadership roles and organizations because of his honesty, character, compassion, caring, and a true desire to make a difference and making Montgomery County better for all of our residents by “doing” and not just “saying”.
"I assure the citizens that as their Justice of the Peace I will make a difference, a special area I will focus on will be with the youth of our community. I want them to have every opportunity in life to succeed. I will be that constant caring adult that some children need to know exists as well as the support that parents need when an extra firm approach is required."
"Every day I have an opportunity to have an impact in their lives when they come before me on matters of truancy, underage use/possession of tobacco and alcohol, shop lifting, theft, assault, and curfew violations. An experienced firm, fair, and accountable approach can make the difference in success or failure in a young person’s life."
"Students truant from school effect the entire community and the quality of education for all. Truant students have been responsible for criminal mischief and daytime burglaries. When a truant student is returned to school the teacher is required to remediate that student which takes teaching time away from the other students. The school districts are not compensated for unexcused days missed, further shifting the burden on the community. As a result of their contact with my court they will start to learn responsibility and accountability.”
"For over 30 years I have counseled youth, I have direct experience working with children that have been abandoned, victims of sexual abuse, addicted to drugs, kids that have been given up on and who have given up on themselves. I have worked with them in the community and I have taken them in and cared for them in our home. I know I can make a difference, I know lives can be turned around. "
"I will continue to work with the youth of our communities, I will be active in the schools, I will be engaged and encourage positive accomplishments as well.... Fair Association, High School Service Clubs at the High Schools, and I am sponsoring mentoring programs."
"I will provide an efficient and fair forum to rectify disputes and to provide justice for the citizens of Montgomery County. Rights to property will be respected and my docket will be current."
"Our staff is efficiently disposing of all matters. When called to a citizen at the time of death, I expeditiously and respectfully provide the inquest service."
"Law enforcement does have 24 hour access to me for death calls, search warrants, and other assistance in the field."
