Marcia Buckley needs to be retained

I am writing to endorse Judge Marcia Buckley for circuit court judge. She needs to be retained.

I have known Judge Buckley for many years. While I was district attorney, I hired her as a deputy district attorney, and while her duties were numerous and varied, she primarily took charge of the child support unit. This is a very difficult and challenging job, which required many talents. Getting support for children and their families who are in needis notalwaysaneasytask.

She proved to be tireless, focused and efficient. She was incredibly effective in collecting support from the men and women who owed support, and she made sure the people who were owed support got what they so desperately needed. But what impressed me most, beyond her high quality work, was her innate sense of fairness and justice.

Judge Buckley went on to have a successful private practice, where she was exposed to many areas of the law. She was then called back to public service and served as chief deputy district attorney for Rob Bovet. After that, she returned to private practice. She has decades of high quality experience in all areas of the law.

She has many fine qualities that a good judge needs, but at the top of the list she is fairness to all. She treats everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve. Experience, integrity, sound judgment and fairness. I hope you will join me in supporting her. Please retain her.
