I have practiced law in this community with Wes Williams for almost 20 years. The voters should know what they will be getting if he is elected judge.

Wes Williams is a crusader for criminal defendants. He is known for his extreme positions supporting criminal defendants which has eroded his credibility. He very strongly identifies with the accused and has shown little empathy for victims of crimes. His support is generally from the most liberal element of our community, especially those in the legal community who view his election as favorable to their criminal clients.

Wes Williams has applied to be appointed judge each of the last three vacancies and was passed over by two different liberal-progressive governors. Each time, the governor’s search committee did an extensive investigation into each applicant’s personal reputation, character and abilities, and determined that another applicant was better qualified.

Why does this matter to your average voter? If Wes Williams is elected judge, the fair administration of justice will suffer.

Mona Williams is a straight-forward, dedicated public servant. She has served as the judge of our circuit and has done an admirable job. She has proven that she is capable of the fair, even, balanced application of law to each individual case. Her personal integrity and repuation for fairness are unquestioned. She is by far the better choice for our circuit court judge. I strongly endorse her.
