Office of the Mayor

Whereas, the Municipal Court of League City, a time honored and vital part of local government, has existed since March 27, 1962; and

Whereas, more people come in personal contact with municipal courts than all other Texas courts combined; and

Whereas, public impression of the entire Texas judicial system is largely dependent upon the public’s experience in municipal court; and

Whereas, Municipal Judges and court support personnel have pledged to be ever mindful of their neutrality and impartiality, rendering equal service to all, and conform to the standards set by the Canons of Judicial Conduct; and

Whereas, the Municipal Courts play a significant role in preserving the quality of life in Texas communities through the adjudication of traffic offenses, ensuring a high level of traffic safety for our citizens; and

Whereas, the Municipal Courts serve as the local justice center for the enforcement ofordinances and laws that protect the peace and dignity of our community; and

Whereas, the Municipal Judges and Clerks continually strive to improve the administration of justice through participation in judicial education programs, seminars, workshops and the annual meetings of their state and local professional organizations;

Therefore, it is most appropriate that we recognize the accomplishments of the 923 Texas Municipal Courts, and salute their critical role in preserving public safety, protecting the quality of life in Texas communities, and deterring future criminal behavior,

Now, therefore, I, Timothy Paulissen, by virtue of the authority vested in me as the 9th Mayor of the City of League City do hereby recognize November 5-9, 2012 asMunicipal Court Week and call upon all residents of League City to extend appreciation to all League City Municipal Judges and court support personnel for the vital services they perform and their exemplary dedication to our community.

In Witness whereof, I hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the City of League City, TX, to be affixed on October 23, 2012.
