I am writing in support of Ben McLaughlin who is running for superior court judge.
Ben holds all the qualities for an excellent judge. He is equitable and experienced. He practiced both civil and criminal law. Ben held positions as a deputy prosecutor and deputy public defender. He is an expert in evidence — an absolute necessity. With his experience, he could hit the ground running. Additionally, Ben is humble. Although he is an excellent attorney, he does not seek out recognition for his efforts. He works hard for his clients and not for accolades.
Finally, Ben is compassionate. During a trial, he had a client from Southern California who could not afford a hotel. Ben used his own money and paid for a hotel room so the client would not have to sleep in his car. I support Ben's candidacy and hope you will, too.
