20 years enough

There is irony in the prevailing sentiment of acrimony and distrust in our federal government. After all, we are a democracy and we are the ones who have placed our representatives into office. It is even more ironic that we show such disdain for the "other" members of Congress while we continue to vote our local representative into office. We have voted our Rep. David Camp into office for the past 20 years. He is quite entrenched in the Washington merry-go-round and is very consistent in voting along party lines. Twenty years is enough. I'm voting for Jerry Campbell.

Decisive, passionate

I have been Mike Stepka's law partner for over five years. Mike's 20 years experience as a local practicing attorney have given him a deep understanding of the law and the internal workings of our local court system.

Mike is decisive, even-tempered, passionate, and treats his clients and court personnel respectfully.

Mike's opponent is a polished politician and an experienced deal maker.

These may be desirable qualities in a legislator, but they are not in a district court judge.

I urge you to vote for Mike Stepka as our next district court judge.

Highest integrity

I would like to encourage the people of Leelanau County to vote for Larry Nelson as their Probate Judge. I worked as Larry's secretary for 10 years early on in his career. I witnessed his interaction with law enforcement, court systems, public agencies and his individual clients, when he served as part-time prosecuting attorney, public defender, and as a private attorney. He handled all matters meticulously and honestly.

He will serve Leelanau County in this position with the highest degree of integrity. A vote for Larry will result in a competent and trustworthy judge.
