Vote for Wilson

I turn on my TV and I see Barack Obama and John McCain. During commercials I see Dino Rossi and Christine Gregiore. What a breath of fresh air it is to have a candidate come to my door and actually talk about what’s important to me. That candidate is Joe Wilson.

Joe is running for Snohomish County Superior Court Judge position 6. Before Joe came by to talk, I didn’t know much about the Superior Court, or what makes a good judge. When Joe and I finished our discussion, I did my homework about both candidates in the race.

Joe has more legal experience than his opponent. For the last 14 years, Joe has tried both criminal and civil cases, the kind of issues that a Superior Court Judge will hear every day. We need competent judges who know what they’re doing on day one. There won’t be a learning curve for Joe, he knows his stuff.

Joe also knows what it means to give back to the community. When he’s not meeting folks around the community and talking about his candidacy, Joe stands up for local crime victims and their family members. Joe is a long-time board member for the Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County, where he volunteers to help families break free from abuse.

What do I like most about Joe? He took the time to listen to my concerns about my neighborhood and my children’s safety. Joe Wilson has done his homework; he is a fair minded, modest person. I’m voting for Joe … and I hope you will too.
