Letter: Supporting Jeannie Ridings

To the Editor:

I fully support Jeannie Ridings for Circuit Court Judge!

The pandemic has made it impossible for me to canvass our community in support, so I am writing this letter to tell you why I support Jeannie.

Jeannie has been an attorney, business owner, and an advocate for more than 15 years, She has handled thousands of cases, in all kinds of state and federal courtrooms.It is important that our judges have this diverse and comprehensive experience before becoming judges. We don’t have time for on-the-job training.

Jeannie is committed to our community. She lives and works here, and she serves our most vulnerable members through countless hours of pro bono work and volunteer work.

There are many people who live here who did not have anyone to turn to when they needed help, but Jeannie helped them when they needed someone most. Jeannie has done a lot of volunteer work for Turning Point and has helped their clients (victims of Domestic Violence).

Jeannie has a wonderful family. She is a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She raised her family all while working as a teacher, and then as a lawyer.Jeannie understands the struggle many of us go through in raising our own families while working, and how sometimes things can go wrong.

She has the kind of real-world experience that a judge needs in order to understand the kind of issues our community faces every day.

I hope you vote for Jeannie for Judge. We need her on the bench in McHenry County!
