To the editor:

I urge the citizens of Brown and Mills counties to re-elect Steve Ellis as judge of the 35th District Court. While working on his re-election campaign, person after person expressed to me their appreciation of Steve and his judicial accomplishments. No matter their role in court proceedings lawyer, juror, witness, defendant they described his professionalism, knowledge, preparedness, fairness and efficiency. Steve exhibited those same personal strengths in this re-election campaign.

His initiatives that attempt to hold families together, protect children and rehabilitate offenders drew great praise. Steve hates the sin and loves the sinner.

We have a clear choice for district judge. Re-elect Steve Ellis in the March 4 Republican primary.
