When deciding who I will vote for in the St. Clair County Circuit Court Judge race, it comes down to two basic things. The first is experience – not only time on the job, but how that person behaves both inside and outside of the courtroom. Judge Cynthia Lane’s exemplary record for tough fairness, coupled with the considerate manner with which conducts her courtroom, makes her the hands down choice. Her knowledge and her proven ability to apply the law fairly not only make her right for the job – but her professionalism, character and integrity make her the only person for the job. The second important characteristic is judgment. Judge Lane exercises consistently good judgment.
When I learned her opponent is running against her simply because he did not like a decision she issued against his client several years ago, that caused me to question whether her opponent has the ability to exercise good judgment. When I learned that her opponent engaged in horseplay with a sheriff’s deputy that resulted in him getting tazed, and then had the gall to sue that deputy in Federal Court (United States District Court case no. 11-14640), that caused me to question whether her opponent has the ability to exercise good judgment. When I learned that her opponent was sued by the City of Port Huron for failing to pay income taxes, that caused me to question her opponent’s ability to use good judgment and also caused me to question whether he has respect for the law.
On November 8th I will be voting to re-elect Cynthia Lane as our Circuit Court Judge. I encourage you to do so as well – because Judge Lane is the right choice for the right reasons.
