Letter: Mark Gerhardt for judge

To the Editor:

This is a letter of support for Mark Gerhardt for Mchenry County judge. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Mark and his family over the past few years.

Mark Gerhardt is a man of integrity, honesty, and wisdom. These attributes coupled with his over 25 years of legal experience, 12 years of experience as a prosecutor, nine years as a judge, and presiding over more jury trials in 2019 than any other judge clearly demonstrates that he will do an excellent job as a McHenry County judge.

His experience also clearly shows that he has much more experience than the candidate that he is running against. Mark is devoted to serving the citizens of McHenry County and keeping McHenry County safe, peaceful, and just.

I have lived in Crystal Lake for 31 years. In these 31 years as a teacher and coach, I have met and discussed with numerous people the amount of change Mchenry County and Illinois has undergone.

In times like the ones we live in now, we need judges like Mark Gerhardt that are just, knowledgeable, and wise that will uphold our laws and keep Mchenry safe.

Mark Gerhardt is the best choice for McHenry County judge to keep McHenry county safe, peaceful, and just. Please vote on Nov. 3 for Mark Gerhardt.
