It is with great pleasure that I recommend Josephine Townsend to the position of Clark County Superior Court judge, department 8. Josephine, who I call Josie, is my cousin, so needless to say I have known her for all of my life. She has been a great adviser and mentor for as long as I can remember. She has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition. She is definitely a leader, but can also be a dependable team player. In addition to her excellent academic accomplishments, she has experience and good judgment. Her mature outlook ensures a logical and practical approach to her endeavors.
