Hernandez announces candidacy for Justice of the Peace

Stacy Hernandez announces her intent to run for Justice of the Peace in the following statement:

Let me introduce myself as a candidate for Justice of the Peace in the 10th Ward of Lafourche Parish.

I am Stacy R. Hernandez, 229 W. 59th St., Cut Off. I am the wife of Bobby Hernandez who worked in the oilfields for 32 years retiring as a senior mechanic with Devon Energy Corporation. I am a loving mother of 2 children and 4 grandchildren; who brighten my life and bring pure love and joy!

I was born and raised in Baton Rouge where I worked for the Dept. of Motor Vehicles for 17 years in several different positions until I worked my way up into management. Having a passion for working at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles, in 2000 I became a Notary and went into business for myself as a Public Tag Agent.

In 2012 I met a wonderful man and decided that I needed a change and I chose “The Bayou” as my forever home. I knew from day 1 that this was where God intended for me to be. The community welcomed me with open arms and life for me took off again. I keep God in my life daily and it’s by His grace that I’m a productive member of society.

I am a member of Community Bible Church, where I will be assisting in teaching Vacation Bible School; and I volunteer my time to work at the Church Food Bank.

When I moved to the Bayou I worked retail for 5 years doing Notary work on the side; helping people when I was able.

I once posted on Facebook that one of my dreams was to become Justice of the Peace of our community so that I was able to use my experience and talent in helping people in civil matters with care and compassion.

I would appreciate your vote on October 14th and if elected, I vow to our community to be honest, loyal, fair and have compassion for all and to face the challenges brought to me.

The Office of Justice of the Peace is sometimes the first contact when problems arise, and I want everyone to feel comfortable and know that they will be treated with the utmost courtesy and respect.

My Blessing to you!
