Always leading with a Servant's heart


Shytishia's passion and dedication to her community and family has kept her grounded and prepared to serve nobly as the next division B judge. She is the wife of Damon and they have three children, Semaj 21, Sera Rose 7 and Semar 13.As judge, Shytishia will fight to keep the scales balanced. She plans to enhance litigants access to tools needed when self represented. She will also maintain the drug court program as it is an essential alternative to incarceration. Finally, as judge she will encourage as far as the law allows, cooperation between all parties in criminal and civil matters in an effort to reduce needless protracted litigation. She will no doubt, make the hard decisions in a fair but firm manner in keeping with the law and the justice system.
