The position of judge of the Circuit Court in our legal system carries respect, and is an honor for any attorney. Critical qualifications include a history of excellence and integrity in both the candidates’ personal and professional lives.
On Nov. 4, you have the right and the obligation to vote intelligently.
One is a sitting judge, selected out of several names, Republicans and Democrats, recommended to our governor by local attorneys. They know the qualifications needed, such as a life devoted to justice, a focused person, dedicated to the truth, and an example to the entire community. A judge must have a full-time commitment and a singular passion for that position. All judges must have a career highlighted by truth and need to be respected by their peers. Judges are not politicians.
Learn about the two men before you vote, because someday you or a family member may stand before that judge, and you are entitled to absolute justice — nothing less.
