I am writing in response to The Leader-Herald's recent "jeer" regarding buying the airwaves with political ads that offer no substance. I completely agree. Although advertising is often a necessary evil when it comes to political campaigns, as Gloversville's City Court judge, and the incumbent candidate for the position, I am able to put real, honest substance behind my advertising. I am proud of my hard-earned experience and have been honest and truthful about my qualifications. My experience and qualifications come from years of working in our courtroom as well as many others, conducting jury trials, making hundreds of court appearances in Gloversville City Court as a prosecutor of blight and other city code violations.
