Experience unmatched

As a full-time Circuit and Probate Court (Family Division) Referee for three counties, probate judicial candidate Kirsten Keilitz's available time for campaigning is limited. But you should know that her time spent hearing hundreds of cases in the courtroom has given her a vast level of experience, unmatched by the other candidate for probate judge.

As a Referee, Kirsten has for several years now earned the respect of the hundreds of county citizens who have appeared in circuit and probate courts.

She has earned my vote to serve Grand Traverse County as its next Probate Court Judge.

A strong proponent

As President of the Traverse Bay Area Republican Women's Club, it is my job to correct rumors that I have heard about our Congressman, Dr. Dan Benishek.

The worst rumor I have heard is that Dr. Benishek does not protect our great lakes. Dr. Dan's a strong proponent of the Great Lakes; he has co-sponsored multiple bills to help them, including the "Stop Invasive Species Act" and the "Asian Carp Act." He is a member of the Great Lakes Task Force, a bipartisan, bicameral group that protects the great lakes.

Dr. Benishek supports our Great Lakes, I support Dr. Benishek.
