Letter: Boles is compassionate, impartial and fair, he says

TO THE EDITOR: Dear Pierce County Friends and Neighbors, Many of you know me from my time as a Patrol Officer for the City of River Falls, or as the Police Chief in Spring Valley.

I am asking to take a couple minutes of your time to discuss the race for Circuit Court Judge. I have discussed this race with many people, and have frequently heard the question, "Why should I care about who the Judge is? Followed by, "I am not a criminal."

The Circuit Court Judge rules on and hears a vast number of cases every year, involving all types of legal actions. Many of these actions are civil in nature and involve things like personal injuries, and collection of debts, along with the many criminal cases. While most of us will never be the cause of any of these actions, we can easily become the victim, the injured party or owed money.

In any situation, Pierce County deserves a judge who is compassionate, impartial and fair. We have been very lucky that many qualified individuals have entered this race; however, the candidate that best exemplifies these core values is Joe Boles. Joe Boles has shown himself to be compassionate as a good neighbor and friend to Pierce County by donating many hours of his time and supporting many different charitable causes. Joe Boles has shown himself time and time again to be impartial and fair as a prosecutor, by coming up with innovative and creative ways to serve the needs of the public and see that justice has been served.

Joe Boles is the Judge Pierce County deserves. Please take advantage of your right to vote on April 6.
