Reardon announces candidacy

Democrat Jordan Reardon, 29, of Globe, officially announced his candidacy for Justice of the Peace for the Globe Regional Justice Courts. This is an open seat, due to the retirement of Judge Jesse E. Bolinger.

Reardon has deep ties to Globe-Miami, where he was born and raised, attending Miami High School. Reardon later graduated from the Correctional Officer Training Academy in Tucson, where he was awarded “Distinguished Officer” for outstanding performance. Reardon worked for the Gila County Sheriff’s Office, where he was certified as the Gang & Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission (GIITEM) Officer. He then worked for the Tempe Police Department Detention Bureau, where he earned a promotion to Sergeant and was in charge of training. Reardon now serves as Alarm Coordinator for the Tempe Police Department.

Reardon said, “Besides my service in public safety, I’ve also prepared for this opportunity to serve as Justice of the Peace, in order to better serve my home area, where all my family, friends and neighbors live.”

Reardon successfully completed New Judge Training and currently serves as a Pro-Tem Judge, Civil Traffic Hearings Officer and Small Claims Hearings Officer.

Reardon is excited for the election and the opportunity to serve, saying, “It would be a great honor to serve my community as your local Justice of the Peace. I promise that I will always treat everyone with respect and professionalism whether you are the victim, the accused or have a civil matter before the court. I ask for your support and vote in the Democrat primary this August.”
