Justice of the Peace Edna Staudt, Precinct Two

Judge Staudt is originally from Austin, married with six children and nine grandchildren.  Her desire to serve the families of Williamson County led her to run for office in 1994. She has served diligently since that time. In addition, she has served on numerous boards, including the Williamson County Jail Bond Board, Child Fatality Review Team, Safe and Drug Free Schools Committee, Agape Pregnancy Resource Center, YMCA of Twin Lakes, Central Texas Justice of the Peace and Constable Association, and Hope Connections Pregnancy Resource Center of Leander. She is also an active member of the Chamber of Commerce in Cedar Park, Leander, and Liberty Hill. She attends Williamson County Cowboy Church where she and her husband assist with music.

She partnered with the Greater Williamson County /YMCA in 1997 to create the first Teen Court program in Williamson County that serves any student willing to learn the Judicial System. This leadership program has provided defendants the opportunity to keep their criminal record clear of convictions.

Seeing the need for resources to address family problems, Judge Staudt created the Justice Court Mentoring Program which networks with local businesses and ministries to assign mentors to troubled teens in her court. The Justice Court Mentoring Program has served hundreds of students providing the support to finish school and make positive choices. She speaks regularly to civic groups and students educating on laws and policy and has sponsored numerous programs to address the issues seen regularly in Justice Court.

With a competent staff of ten court clerks, she officiates over a Criminal Docket, Civil Docket, Death Inquests, Wedding Ceremonies, and a large variety of miscellaneous duties.
