McAuliffe best candidate for county court judge

With the race for the Fulton County Family Court Judge approaching, I want to announce whom I believe is the best candidate to sit on the bench. I, Joseph Benton, fully endorse attorney Gerard McAuliffe to succeed outgoing Fulton County Family Court Judge the honorable, Edward Skoda. Attorney Michael Smrtic is a very nice man, but Mr. Smrtic, I strongly believe, isn’t the most experienced and qualified candidate for the position.

Gerard McAuliffe has been an attorney working in Fulton County for decades. Mr. McAuliffe has served the under privileged citizens of Fulton County many times. Gerard McAuliffe has dedicated his career as an attorney to helping not only the citizens of Fulton County but others as well. The shoes of incumbent family court judge, the honorable, Edward Skoda are big to fill. That’s why I strongly believe that Mr. McAuliffe should fill those big shoes!

I recommend that all citizens of Fulton County do the right thing by electing Gerard McAuliffe to the bench. Mr. McAuliffe would make an excellent jurist.

JOSEPH EDWARD BENTON JR.
