Carruth for J.P.

Carruth familyI am a proud, native West Texan who grew up in Lamesa.  A lover of agriculture, I obtained an Agricultural Communications degree at Texas Tech University before attending Texas Tech University School of Law.

 

In 2009, my husband, Kyle, and I moved to Houston to pursue professional opportunities.  By 2011, we were ready to make West Texas our home and, with our son, Thatcher, returned home to live our family dreams. 

 

That same year, the doors opened to Saleh Law, PLLC, where I have the opportunity to live out a life-long dream of practicing law with my father, Judge Sam Saleh.  My private practice has allowed me to combine a love of agriculture and financial planning into a solo practice representing farmers, agriculturists, business owners and fellow West Texans in various areas of the law. 

 

In a democracy it is important for the voters to have a choice. The position of Justice of the Peace is the judicial post that is closest to the people. It is important that all of our judges have the highest ethical standards and are competent to accomplish the important tasks of the job.

 

Although it is not a requirement for a Justice of the Peace to be a licensed attorney, a knowledge of the court, law and the judicial process is required for the court to be efficient and successful. 

 

As an attorney I’ve worked in a variety of courts in a variety of places and I understand the demands of the position and the importance of following the law as it is set out. 

 

I am a conservative, common sense, knowledgeable candidate who pledges to run the Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4 court with integrity, justice, knowledge and impartiality.

 

I would appreciate your vote and support.
