Letter to the Editor: Vote Smith for judge

To the editor: Let me begin by saying first of all I personally like our present court officials. I believe they are doing a good job. Although now with Judge Thompson retiring and his position open, we have candidates Mike Smith and Joe Dabulskis seeking to fill his position.

That would mean we would have one member with little experience and one with no experience on a three-member court, leading our county.

Wayne Fawbush, a Democrat, were there to answer questions. Walden gave us solid facts, Fawbush got up and tried to be funny and said nothing.
