In support of David Akemann

By on October 28, 2010

It’s difficult for the average elector to know who to vote for when it comes to judges. Judicial candidates can’t campaign on issues normally associated with your normal political offices; so how do you evaluate them?

The only meaningful way to evaluate a judicial candidate is by his or her legal experience, abilities, reputation and temperament. These traits are probably best known to a candidate’s legal peers, and thus, the judicial polls conducted by your local bar association certainly can help, but recommendations from fellow lawyers who know and work with these candidates, I feel, is also helpful.

Thus, the reason for this letter is to recommend David Akemann for Kane County Circuit Judge. I feel David has these qualities we lawyers look for in a judge and that he would be a welcomed addition to the Kane County Judiciary.
