No backlog in Burnett’s court

PORT NECHES — Mary Meaux presented an even-handed report on the two candidates for Justice of the Peace in Precinct 7, listing their qualifications, experience and goals.

One point I'd like to see emphasize, however, is that there is no backlog — none at all —  in Judge Brad Burnett's court.  As he said, "Justice must be swift as well as fair."  Because of innovations developed by a skilled and motivated staff, his office has handled 60,000 cases in a timely manner while returning over $2 million to the county treasury.

I just wish that every local, state and national office were run with that level of efficiency.
