All too often there are two types of offices where the voters know the least about the candidates and those elected to that position have the greatest impact on our daily lives - school board directors and judges - education of our children and ensuring citizens have the full protection of the law.
And remember, judges are elected for a 10-year term and then may be retained or re-elected until mandatory retirement at age 70.
One of the main reasons I support Wade Kagarise is his extensive experience in the Blair County Court of Common Pleas.
With more than 15 years, experience in the county district attorney's office, he has extensive criminal trial experience including prosecuting crimes such as murder, rape, assault, child abuse and other such crimes.
I urge the voters of Blair County to join me on May 21 in voting for the most qualified and experienced man, Wade Kagarise.
