Attorney believes honesty and integrity make him the right man for the bench
Adam Warren, 38
Q. What do you see as the biggest issue for the office you are seeking?
A. Unlike partisan offices, judges don't have issues. I feel the "issue" for anyone who wants to sit on the bench is honesty and integrity. I will bring honesty, integrity and common sense to the bench; I will represent the values of Volusia County and follow the law.
Q. What are your qualifications for the office you are seeking?
A. My mother, a judge for more than 20 years, often said anyone can learn the law, but few have the integrity and honesty to be a judge. I believe the most important qualifications I have are my honesty, personal character and commitment to follow the law.
Q. If you win, what's the first issue you will tackle?
A. For a judge, there are no issues to be tackled aside from managing your docket and ensuring the legal process moves forward as quickly and economically as possible. Judges must follow the law as it is written without interjecting his or her personal feelings on it.
Q. If you lose, will you continue in politics?
A. My father, Dan Warren, a former state attorney and justice of the peace, was committed to public service. My mother, Stasia Warren, a former county court judge, is committed to public service. My parents instilled in me a commitment to public service that will continue long after the election.
