Join me and vote for Mike Smrtic today

For the past several years, I have been honored to hold the title of fire chief for the Caroga Lake Volunteer Fire Department.

This is a position that comes with great responsibilities and difficult challenges.

Throughout many of these challenges, I have been fortunate enough to be able to turn to an attorney who has volunteered his time and services whenever I have needed him. That attorney is Mike Smrtic.

Not only has Mike helped our department whenever we have asked, he has also demonstrated to me that he has the same core values that I hold most dear as a volunteer firefighter — he’s compassionate and has a genuine concern for helping others in times when they need it the most.

On a personal level, I reached out to Mike when I had to face a very delicate and devastating issue involving my ailing mother, and Mike fought aggressively to help my family.

It was at this time that I saw how much Mike values family and how critically important it was that he had a deep and complex knowledge of the law.

For all of these reasons, Mike Smrtic has my 100 percent support.

I ask that you join me in voting for Mike Smrtic for Family Court judge on Sept. 13.
