J.B. Bennett Will Be A Fair, Ethical Patient Judge - And Response

Thursday, April 10, 2014

I am writing to express my support for J.B. Bennett as our next Hamilton County Circuit Court judge, Division 1.

I have practiced law in Hamilton County for over 20 years, and I have tried a great number of jury trials before many of the courts in our city and throughout region.  Based on these experiences, I believe J.B. has the right qualities to be a superb judge. In my opinion, he is the most qualified candidate for Circuit Court judge. 

He has earned a reputation among his colleagues as a man who is fair, ethical, and patient. All excellent attributes for a judge.   

Please join me and vote for J.B. Bennett for Circuit judge, during early voting, April 16-May 1, or on election day, May 6.
