I got a call yesterday evening from a young couple who are looking to get married in a few weeks. Why were they calling me?...well, I AM A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE! I had completely forgotten that. I became a JP when I was elected to office for my first term. The Democratic Town Committee Chair thought it would be good for a up and coming political star...to serve in this capacity. Anyway this young couple found me in the Justice of the Peace Registry. Now I am not sure I will marry them, but I did enjoy chatting with them about love and marriage. My JP terms ends sometime in 2009. You serve in 4 year terms. As a JP I can of course officiate weddings, sign off on legal documents--like a notary, issue subpoenas and a few other minor things. I doubt if I will be asked to continue as JP once my term expires, if I am I will certainly do it...just because it is nice to say I am a Justice Of The PEACE!
