My wife, Diana (Ford), and I currently live about 5 miles west of Adrian.
I have been involved with the development of career and technical education for over 30 years. I have also served on the state and national boards for the Technology Student Association, the CTSO for technology students. I have been involved in the development of Project Lead The Way and its STEM education program in Missouri. I am a firm believer that STEM-based education is the future of most of our young people.
Missouri must stay at the forefront in its ability to support its public schools in educating our students to meet their fullest potential. Our state government must maintain diligence in insuring the education of all of its public school students for their futures and for the future of our state.
We must raise the minimum wage in Missouri. The current minimum wage is not sufficient for families to provide food, lodging, and clothing for their families, causing them to need to remain on food stamps. This wage is not enough to give them a hand up and needs to be raised.
I will continue to fight against Right to /work. Right to Work will be brought up again and must be fought until it is, finally, put to rest. It will harm all of our working men and women, lowering wages and benefits in all areas.
We must support our family farms. We need to create competitive markets in seed supply, allowing farmers more choice in from whom the purchase their seeds for planting, hopefully, giving them more profit at harvest. I also believe we must eliminate the sale of Missouri land to foreign governments, thereby, saving our land for Missouri farm families.
BIO for Joe Zuzul candidate for Associate Circuit Judge
I have the desire to use my vast experience to further serve this community. In 1989, at the age of 28, I moved here and never moved away. I did not expect to stay, but fell in love with this fine place and its people. I have been honored to work with a long line of great Vernon County judges over the years, judges like Patricia Breckinridge, David Darnold, Jerry McBeth, James Bickel, and Neal Quitno. I would like to carry on this strong legacy.
I have been a lawyer over 30 years. Much of that time has been spent in courtrooms. Clarence Darrow once said, "The only real lawyers are trial lawyers, and trial lawyers try cases to juries." I've done more jury trials than I can count. Much of that 30 years has been being the boss of a law office, and I've assisted and mentored younger lawyers, many who themselves were doing their first jury trials, often winning.
Over the years I've developed excellent working relationships with local judges, prosecutors, law enforcement, probation officers, court clerks, and mental health professionals, and most of all, with my clients.
I'm more than prepared to be your next Associate Circuit Judge.
