In Support Of J.B. Bennett - And Response

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Citizens of Hamilton County:

J.B. Bennett is well qualified to serve as Circuit Court Judge. 

I have known J.B. for several years and have been impressed with his professional accomplishments.  His father, Bill Bennett, has been a very respected public official in Hamilton County for many years.

As a retired law enforcement officer, I believe J.B. Bennett would serve as Judge in Circuit Court in a fair, equitable and judicious manner. 

I hope you will join my family in voting for J.B. Bennett as the next Circuit Court Judge.

I have had the privilege of knowing JB Bennett for over 20 years and as of late had the honor of serving as JB’s treasurer. I have known of JB’s sterling reputation as an attorney but it has been as his treasurer that I have seen firsthand his organizational skills, personal integrity, and tireless work ethic. JB has managed an outstanding campaign – organizing,  explaining why he wants to serve, sharing his vision, and meeting people from all over Hamilton County. It is with great confidence that I recommend JB Bennett for Circuit Court Judge Division 1.
