The voters of Flathead County will soon have the opportunity to vote for a new Justice of the Peace. This judge will be one of two judges presiding over one of the busiest courts in Montana. The importance of this position cannot be understated. The Justice of the Peace will be entrusted with the administration of a large budget, the supervision of a dedicated staff of assistants, and the careful consideration and decision of cases involving a broad range of legal topics. This judge will hear big and small cases; all of them important to the litigants and the citizens of the county.
William Managhan is uniquely qualified to serve the voters. William’s integrity and work ethic is beyond reproach. His legal career has spanned many years and has included a broad range of subjects; both criminal and civil. Through his practice William has demonstrated his intellect, his commitment to the rule of law, and his unwavering quest for fair and impartial justice for all. William understands the need for a court and judge that is independent and free from political influence and favoritism. Irrespective of the outcome of a case or dispute, William is committed to the fair and impartial administration of justice – civil and criminal.
William’s passion for the law is appropriately tempered with compassion and understanding of people and the problems that necessarily bring them to court. He will be a judge for all people irrespective of social status and the path that brought them to the court.
I urge the voters of Flathead County to carefully consider and cast their vote, and having done so, that they vote for William Managhan as their next Justice of the Peace.
