facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Michael Cosme Real recently announced his candidacy for Justice of the Peace for Precinct 6, which includes Superior, Kearny, Queen Valley, Top of the World and the surrounding areas. “I am ready to stand up and work hard to serve the people in Precinct 6 to bring justice and peace. I believe in truth, morals, values and hard work, but most of all justice. The escalating crime rate in our communities needs someone readily available to make good judgments and keep order in the courtroom while keeping updated on the ever changing laws through the Arizona Judicial systems continuing education and network of fellow judges.”

Michael was born in Ray and grew up in Superior. He graduated from Superior High School and attended CAC at the Aravaipa Campus. He has worked for Kennecott and Asarco since 1979, where he completed an apprenticeship program with the distinction as Outstanding Apprentice in the State of Arizona. He has also received additional training in numerous workshops around the country in subjects including arbitration, union stewardship, grievance hearings and updates in statutes and contracts. He has been a member of United Steelworkers Local 915 for 35 years, has served as financial secretary for 9 years, and is on the contract negotiating and apprenticeship committees. As union shop steward, Michael has supported fellow union brothers and sisters. “I feel the experience from years of various grievance and disciplinary hearings as a union steward will provide a good foundation for presiding over a courtroom.”

Michael resides in Kearny with his wife Laura. They have three children and a granddaughter. He and Laura are active members of Infant Jesus of Prague and frequent attendees of S. Francis of Assisi in Superior. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and serves on the board of trustees. He has been a Cursillista since 2001.

Michael believes strongly in helping others and serving his community. In addition to the time he has given to church activities, he has also been a little league coach and has contributed many hours for his fellow union members in strikes, rallies and local support. Michael is also an avid outdoorsman and a member of the Mule Deer Foundation.

Michael urges everyone to vote on Tuesday, August 26th. Independent voters may vote for Michael by requesting a Democratic ballot. “I have the qualities of a good judge. I know God’s law, and in the judicial branch of government I will work closely with community resources to provide rehabilitation through counseling programs, probation and victim advocates. I look forward to working closely with staff as a team to provide the community with a court that will ensure respect and fairness according to the law.”

Your vote is important. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent on things that matter.” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
