Letters to the Editor

Casey McClain a great teammate

I first met Casey McClain and his wife Lucy when we moved to State College in 2008. We played in a recreational soccer league at Memorial Field. Since that time, Casey and I have played soccer hundreds of times in both friendly and competitive matches. Casey has always been a supportive teammate and brought a positive winning attitude to the team. I am writing this letter in support of Casey for district judge 49-2-01 serving College (North and West), Ferguson, Halfmoon and Patton townships.

There have been many letters written outlining why Casey has the best qualifications for this position, being a trial lawyer for 14 years in the Public Defender Office, being an adjunct professor at PSU Law the past four years, and even being recognized with the John R. Miller Jr. Civility Award, but I want the community to know who he is off the field, so to speak. Casey is a family man who loves his wife and son. He loves playing soccer and is a great teammate both on and off the field. He is warm and friendly, yet is competitive and works hard to achieve his goals. The Casey I know is willing to lend a hand and always wants to find the good in people. Casey has always approached life with a quick wit and a smile, he is a person I trust to do the right thing. These qualities combined with his exceptional legal experience make him the best candidate for our community.
