The next several years will tell the rest of the story of whether all the work of so many and the votes tallied last Thursday were merited. I appreciate so much the confidence placed and will continue to work hard every day so that the rest of the story is one of dedicated service, impartial judgment and keen focus on the community, children, youth and families.
I have always been and will continue to be in the communities and schools as much as possible, but I am forever richer for the thousands of hands I shook, the personal stories I heard, and the people I met over the last several months from all parts of the county. From the barber shops in the city to the Hardees on the north sides of the county, I met incredible people who have their own stories of inspiration and life experience that were touching, alarming, motivating and sometimes hilarious. I appreciate those moments, will continue the conversations, and will seek out workable ways for all of us to ensure the positive nurturing of the most vulnerable and impressionable among us.
Your servant leader of the Hamilton County Juvenile Court,
Judge Rob Philyaw
