“YOU NEED TO BE A LAWYER (Like Me) TO BE JUSTICE OF THE PEACE!!!”
-- AMANDA TORRES (infers), Republican Candidate for Justice of the Peace
But in the last few months, some are censorious and taunt that her “walk” or “trot” has changed from one of normalcy to one with a swaggering exaggeration, an overstatement, an amplication that mirrors flatulency that her “official power” has conjured up – a reflection of the distension of her ego and social pretentions. She flaunted her lawyer credentials at various events, and thus implicitly and explicitly emphasizing how lawyer and technocratic credentials place her above her rival -- community activist Joe Benavides. The new agenda resounds with a bitter note that lifts a jejune-laden compulsion to new heights. The claim infers that one has to be a lawyer (like her) to be a JP. This publication interviewed several JPs in the area, they recurrently stated: “Nothing could be further from the truth.”
But Ms. Amanda Torres does not seem to be overly concerned about a consistent tenure in the office. Word circulates that she has been peering at another post to run for in the near future. “I hear she is using the job, the appointment, whatever you want to call it, as a stepping stone. I feel Ms. Torres’ over ambition is a bottomless pit which will exhaust her in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction. In my opinion, she could care less about the job or the kids that come before the court. That is the difference between she and Joe Benavides (her Democrat opponent),” a courthouse employee felt.
