Casey McClain for Magisterial District Judge

Just to reiterate: Casey McClain is going to make a great Magisterial District Judge.

Here is my previous endorsement of Casey in the Primary. I stand by every word of it.

I’ve also submitted a Letter to the Editor to both the Centre Daily Times and StateCollege.com. My original text:

Being a Magisterial District Judge involves a lot more than filing traffic citations, no matter how long one does it. It requires an acute, focused mind and the ability to carefully interpret and apply laws. Casey McClain has sixteen years of experience as an attorney in the toughest job around. He is a fierce and formidable advocate for his clients, and I expect he will bring that same commitment and dedication to serving as our next Magisterial District Judge.

His opponent claims to be the only certified and qualified candidate, but he isn’t telling us the whole story: He had to take a four-week class because he is not a lawyer. Casey McClain is and he has the qualifications, education, and experience required to be an outstanding judge. You simply cannot compare a four-week class to sixteen years of on-the-job experience. Learning as you go is no substitute for experience.

Our next judge shouldn’t start his tenure by lying to us. We need a straight-shooter who always puts his duty above his own ambition. That candidate is Casey McClain.

I will update with links if either of them deign to publish it.
