Writer Supports Judge Murad

Dear Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Judge David A. Murad who is running for the position of Supreme Court Justice. Most people do not have an opportunity to see a Judge in action although our judges are at the center of the entire judicial process. As a result, it is critical that we elect the right individuals to these positions.

As an attorney I have had the opportunity to know David A. Murad when he was in private practice. I have also had the pleasure of appearing before him in his capacity as Surrogate Court Judge and Family Court Judge. On each occasion I have been impressed with his professionalism, his courtesies to all parties involved and most importantly, his ability to fairly assess the facts and appropriately dispense justice in each case.

Judge David A. Murad has the experience and integrity that is needed for a Supreme Court Justice. He was a private attorney for 18 years, he is a Certified Public Accountant and along with his position as Surrogate Court Judge he has functioned as Acting Family Court Judge as well as Acting Supreme Court Justice. With this broad range of experience and his proven character it is clear that he is a person who can be entrusted with the power that such a position holds.

Therefore, I strongly encourage my fellow citizens to vote for Judge David A. Murad on election day – he is truly the right person for the job.
