JUDGE JAY H. PAYNE
rtisan candidate for
Judge Payne's record throughout seventeen years judicial service in Washtenaw
County is absolute proof that he possesses in an unusual degree the three essential
qualities of a good judge-
PERSONAL INTEGRITY -JUDICIAL TEMPERAMENT-
ADEQUATE LEGAL TRAINING
A graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, he holds the degree of
Juris Doctor as evidence of his superior preparation in law.
Fortified with several years of successful experience as a practicing attorney, Jay
H. Payne has spent the\major part of his adult life in our judicial service. As
Municipal Judge in Ann Arbor he has done an outstanding job, always enforcing
the law strictly and fearlessly but ever dispensing justice humanely and impartially,
with equality to all, and without regard to the color, creed, politics or social position
of the persons appearing before him.
"To do the best judicial work, or even to learn the best methods for
doing it, years of research and experience are required. Many judges do
good work from the beginning of their service, but as in other work, all
can learn to do better work in the hard school of experience.
The policy of advancement from a position of lesser responsibility to one
of greater, such as prevails throughout industry and other fields of
human activities, should apply to our judiciary."

A Personal Statement from
Judge Jay H, Payne,
As my campaign fot promotion to the Circuit Court comes to a close, may I
express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the many fine people of Washtenaw
County who have assisted me on a voluntary and purely non-partisan, non-political basis.
I have not sought the active help of any clique or group, nor of lawyers, law
enforcing agencies and others having daily business with the courts;
Since I have insisted that every cent spent in the campaign come from my own
personal funds, I have been unable to employ highly paid campaign personnel or use
other expensive campaign method
The tireless work which has been done for me by many, will ever remain in my mind
and heart as proof that no man can have greater wealth than friends who are true.
Thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart.
JAY H. PAYNE.
