To the editor:
As a practicing Monroe County lawyer for 37 years, I write to support Jeff Kehr’s candidacy for judge of Division 8 of the Monroe County Circuit Court, Seat 5. Jeff brings his 22 years of experience in the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office as a felony prosecutor to the bench. As first deputy prosecutor, he has extensive management experience. Both skills are invaluable for a trial judge.
Judges also must be able to make decisions. Those decisions must be fair. In addition to extensive trial experience, Jeff has a record of good decision making. During his years of public service, Jeff has earned a reputation as honest, fair-minded, and hard-working. Although he has fought crime vigorously, he listens to people and believes in justice. Jeff has participated in such ground-breaking programs such as the Monroe County Drug Treatment Court, a problem-solving court directed at helping chemically dependent adults achieve sobriety.
I plan to vote for Jeff Kehr for judge of Monroe Circuit Court. I ask Monroe County voters to do the same.
