To the Journal editor:
On Tuesday, voters in Marquette County will vote in the primary election, and among the races this year is for probate judge in Marquette County. I urge you to cast your vote for Cheryl Hill.
I've known Cheryl for 12 years, both during her years in private practice and in her subsequent service in the prosecutor's office. Through my own work in law enforcement, I have had the pleasure of working with Cheryl on criminal and civil matters.
People usually associate the police with criminal courts, but law enforcement often assist and protect vulnerable people, such as abused or neglected children or the acutely mentally ill who need intervention. Cheryl approaches these situations with compassion, and with a broad base of knowledge.
She is responsive to and supportive of our law enforcement community. I am confident that her personality and legal skill will suit her well for service as judge in the probate court. Please join me in supporting Cheryl Hill on Tuesday.
