Letter: McGlaughlin Will Bring Competence, Character as Centre County Judge

on May 06, 2017 5:00 AM

I consider two key factors in supporting Ron McGlaughlin for judge: competence and character.

On competence: I can’t claim to understand the intricacies of a judge’s duties or workings of the legal system. I imagine that puts me in line with most voters, and probably most folks who, for whatever reason, find themselves in a courtroom. That’s why it is so important to have confidence that our judges are well prepared to preside over fair and orderly trials. In this, there is no substitute for legal experience, and Ron has the clear advantage. He has practiced law for over 30 years and specialized in the types of cases that most often come before a judge. In this race, Ron is the only candidate with jury trial experience. He is respected by his peers and endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police. Ron McGlaughlin will be ready on day one.

On character: I’ve personally witnessed Ron’s tireless work ethic. Ron is a fellow Rotarian and has lived his life in accordance with that organization’s mantra of prioritizing service to others over self-interest. He and Ann raised two children admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy. I know Ron and his family to be genuinely good people. This matters. Anyone involved in a legal proceeding wants a judge who takes the role seriously, an upstanding and committed citizen-servant.

We can trust Ron to get the job done with efficiency and integrity. On Tuesday, May 16, please join me in voting for Ron McGlaughlin.
