Smith an able candidate

In my view, Kristin Smith outshines all local candidates for judge. Kristin Smith has appeared regularly in our local courts since 1997 and for the past seven years has represented children who suffer from parental abuse and neglect. Regular courtroom experience is critical to the qualifications of a judicial candidate. As an appellate lawyer, I have seen many cases overturned on appeal due to the rulings of trial judges who lack courtroom experience and ability or who are not fair and unbiased, We need a judge like Kristin Smith who is experienced, fair, able, and independent.
