Judge Rich Herman to Seek Re-Election

Potter County Justice of the Peace Rich Herman will be running for re-election in 2018.

Judge Herman confirmed to the Amarillo Pioneer today that he plans to run for re-election to his second term in the upcoming election. Judge Herman cited new goals in the court as being his key for jumping back in for a second campaign.

"I have some goals from some things that I have seen that we can improve on to carry the court in the right direction." Judge Herman said.

Judge Herman won his first election in 2014 against incumbent Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Nancy Bosquez. The Republican nominee Herman defeated Democrat Bosquez, 61 percent to 39 percent. Herman won his first term advocating a platform of reforming of the court's handling of misdemeanor truancy cases.

Herman represents a portion of Potter County that is east of Interstate 27 and south of 24th Avenue in Amarillo. Precinct 2 is nearly to the eastern boundary of Amarillo.

Thus far, Herman is the only announced candidate for the Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace position.
