I write in support of Wade Kagarise to be our next judge.
Kagarise has served as a chief deputy in my office during my tenure as Blair County's district attorney. I have trusted him with the prosecution of some of Blair County's most serious criminals, including several murderers.
Likewise, I have asked him to serve on numerous criminal justice committees on my behalf. He has worked with our current judges on DUI court, drug court and implementation of a mental health court.
While serving on these committees, Kagarise always has the safety of the citizens in mind.
Kagarise will be a tough judge, a conservative, pro-life judge. He is a dedicated public servant and a United States Army infantryman veteran.
There is no question in my mind that he is the most qualified candidate in this race. I fully endorse his candidacy.
