Many voters are discouraged this year by the choices in our national election. But in the local race for our next Superior Court judge, we should all be encouraged that we have the chance to vote for an extraordinary candidate — Judge Joe Burrowes.
I have personally witnessed his work as the current Benton County District Court Judge and found him to be fair, impartial and passionate about justice. His compassion is evident and sincere and he treats all who come before him fairly, regardless of their race, age, gender or background.
In cases that involve our young people, he maintains a stern view on justice, making the tough decisions, but also makes the most of teachable moments to give heartfelt advice so they can make necessary changes in their lives to avoid having to see him again.
For these reasons and so many more, I am proud to support Judge Joe Burrowes.
