Pittman has proven ability
Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Having been a licensed attorney for over 40 years, I have only rarely known a lawyer for whom I have as much respect as I have for Jarrette Pittman. He comprises the epitome of a well-rounded, superbly well-educated, highly-experienced, and deeply-philosophical seeker of social justice and accountability.
I know Jarrette to be motivated, not at all by personal ambition, but by a sense of duty to use his remarkable talents effectively as a guardian of our American legal system — both for the protection of society and to safeguard individual rights. In the process of handling hundreds of cases in our District Court, he has striven to balance these factors in a fair-but-firm manner. People who know him well are not at all surprised by his well-documented successes both as an assistant district attorney and as a defense attorney. He knows both roles very well. As such he is able to appreciate and understand the fact that reasonable people differ.
Now Pittman is offering to serve as a Pitt County District Court judge. If he is elected, he will undoubtedly mete out justice as it should be handled, with both fairness and compassion, in accordance with the law — but also in accordance with common sense and moderation. Who could ask for more than that from any judge?
I recommend Jarrette Pittman for the position of Pitt County District Court Judge with much enthusiasm and without reservation.
