1. How would you implement your top priority?

Answer from Ann Marie Tracey:

Promptly, fairly and appropriately managing and resolving disputes involves a multi-prong approach. My taking a "hands on" approach to my docket and cases promotes cases revolving more efficiently.

Fairness requires listening well, understanding the positions of all sides in a dispute, and deciding the case based on its merits, that is, on the evidence and the law.

Resolving cases appropriately involves offering the optimal tool (mediation, arbitration, trial) to parties, and deciding a case on the merits.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League.  Candidates' statements are presented as submitted. Word limits for answers are 75 words for each question. Direct references to opponents are not permitted
