TJ has been a committed citizen to this region for a long time. It was certainly a relief for me to have someone as active and interested in this game as TJ to have interest in the position.

I strongly urge the Assembly to confirm this nominee. If anyone has specific questions for me regarding my appointment of TJ, I'd be happy to answer them.

No reason why he shouldn't be confirmed.

Mideast Assemblymen,

I would like to start off by thanking our Governor Tmthforu94 for appointing me to this position and look forward to serving if confirmed by this body. I believe I can serve as a knowledgeable and qualified judge having served both as an Assemblyman and a Senator previously. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

TJ, do you think it is okay to rule on cases with a slightly political angle? Meaning, if you were to rule on a case regarding abortion, do you think it's okay to allow your personal values to influence your decision?

If presented with such a case, I would strive to be as impartial as possible. A judge's job in a situation where the legality of a law is questioned is to determine whether or not a law can be passed under our constitutions, both federal and regional, not whether or I view it a good law. As for a suit on abortion, I would listen to the arguments to make such a determination as I would under any other case. The Mideast Constitution is very specific about the powers of the Superior Court and I will follow it.

With no questions having been presented in 24 hours, this is now brought to a vote.

The vote is to confirm TFJ in Cleve for Superior Court Judge.  Members will vote AYE, NAY, or ABSTAIN.  This will be a 48-hour vote.

Voting is now closed.  The AYEs are 4, and the NAYs are 0, with 1 not voting.  The AYEs have it, and TJ in Cleve is confirmed.
