To the Editor:
As a former mayor of McHenry and retired business owner, I know the best judges are those with many years of experience in the courtroom and a wide background in various areas of practice. Over the years, residents of McHenry County have been richly blessed with well qualified jurists who equitably apply and interpret the rule of law while at the same time exhibiting skills of independence, discernment, effectiveness and impartiality.
For that reason, I wholeheartedly support Mark Gerhardt for election as McHenry County Circuit Court Judge. His 25 years of legal experience and more than 9 years as judge uniquely qualify him to continue his service.
His lengthy and wide-ranging experience places him in the best position to be prepared for the complicated and demanding decisions presented today's courtroom. I have known Mark and his family for many years.
It is rare to find someone like Mark in public service today who possesses the combination of integrity, intellect, dedication, trustworthiness, and empathy required to wisely preside over today’s complex cases and impartially apply the rule of law.
McHenry County is fortunate to have Mark Gerhardt as a jurist. Please elect Mark Gerhardt McHenry County Circuit Court Judge on Nov. 3.
