Open Letter-Town of Silt

March 4, 2010
An open letter to the People of the Town of Silt:


I have had the honor, privilege, and pleasure of serving the Town of Silt as the municipal judge for the last 25 years. It has been the longest continuous term of office of any municipal judge in this region.


It was my goal, and, hopefully, one that I reached, to serve as the judge with fairness, competence, justice and compassion.


I am happy to state that during this last quarter century the municipal court has performed its services to the Town in an extraordinarily effective and judicious manner. We have had no significant controversies, no appeals, successful or otherwise, and the vast majority of cases were settled appropriately and amicably with the aid of a series of competent prosecutors. I have had many compliments from residents of the Town of Silt on the manner in which I performed in that office and I have greatly appreciated these flattering comments and the support of the People of the Town of Silt and the municpal governments through these years.


I was extremely active in the Colorado Municipal Judges Association and, while serving the Town of Silt, also served a term as the President of the Colorado Municipal Judges Association. This was nearly unique as the vast majority of Presidents of that association have come from large municipalities on the eastern slope of Colorado.


Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to serve as the Municipal Judge. It has been a wonderful experience for me personally and I take with me a pride in the work the court has done and, as a side benefit, some really funny stories!

I will not submit a response to the “Request for Proposal” for this upcoming term as I want to become more politically involved and focus on my private practice.


I want you to know that I have immense appreciation for the trust and opportunity you gave to me. I’m sure I will miss

you all.


Thank you,

Tom Silverman
