One candidate for judge stands above the field | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:
On Primary election day we must choose from among a field of four lawyers vying for the open judicial seat in our Superior Court, left vacant by retiring Judge Karlynn Haberly.
I am supporting Jennifer Forbes.
Jennifer is the only candidate among the four seeking this position who has been rated “Exceptionally Well Qualified” by more than one bar association (votingforjudges.org). This rating is the highest honor available to a judicial candidate.
She is also the only candidate among the field who currently practices both criminal and civil law in Superior Court, and she is a mentor and a domestic violence educator.
I know it is hard to know who to vote for in judicial elections. Jennifer’s blend of outstanding professional credentials and years of civic activism make her the best choice.
Please vote. And please vote for Jennifer Forbes as our next Superior Court judge.
