WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to westport@dailyvoice.com.

To The Editor:

Thank you to the voters of Westport and Weston for putting your trust in me and electing me your new Probate Judge. I am scheduled to be sworn in this Wednesday morning at Westport Town Hall at 8:30. You are more than welcome to be there.

I have already attended four hours of judicial instruction; there are at least another 40 to come. My first matter on the calendar is a hearing for an involuntary commitment to a mental hospital -- one of the most serious decisions any judge has to make. I am looking to my faith and my community for guidance and wisdom to do this job well.

On Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., I will be at Probate Court to answer your general questions about estate planning and probate procedure. Please do not ask me questions or tell me facts about a particular case -- I am not allowed to discuss anything involving a specific matter unless it is in front of all interested parties. Night hours will begin on December 10 at Westport Town Hall.

Of course, I will be also be at court during the day with the rest of the staff, so please stop by and say hello. Thank you again for the great honor you have given me. I will do my best not to let you down.

Lisa K. Wexler
