Letters to the editor | McGlaughlin right for job

I have had the pleasure of being Ron McGlaughlin’s legal assistant for almost nine years.

I constantly pester him with questions about the hows and whys of the legal system, especially pertaining to criminal and family law matters that are the basis of his practice. McGlaughlin knows the rules of both criminal and civil procedure like the back of his hand. He readily explains due process as it applies to the specific case in question.

McGlaughlin takes the same care with his clients, never making grandiose promises but determining and striving to obtain what is fair and just for his clients under the law. He is adept at staunching pettiness, which can be prevalent in any litigation.

Especially given the current crisis in our courthouse and with only two of the four judges able to hear criminal matters, McGlaughlin is exactly who Centre County needs on the bench. Criminal cases make up roughly 75 percent of the cases in the Court of Common Pleas. It only makes sense to have a judge who is well versed in that area of law and can hit the ground running in order to keep the wheels of justice turning efficiently.

McGlaughlin is the only candidate with criminal law experience. I have absolute confidence that with his extensive knowledge and personal ethics, he is the very best candidate for judge of the Court of Common Pleas. Centre County needs McGlaughlin. Please give him your vote on Nov. 3.
