In support of David Akemann

Itâ€™s difficult for the average elector to know who to vote for when it comes to judges. Judicial candidates canâ€™t campaign on issues normally associated with your normal political offices; so how do you evaluate them?
The only meaningful way to evaluate a judicial candidate is by his or her legal experience, abilities, reputation and temperament. These traits are probably best known to a candidateâ€™s legal peers, and thus, the judicial polls conducted by your local bar association certainly can help, but recommendations from fellow lawyers who know and work with these candidates, I feel, is also helpful.
Thus, the reason for this letter is to recommend David Akemann for Kane County Circuit Judge. I feel David has these qualities we lawyers look for in a judge and that he would be a welcomed addition to the Kane County Judiciary.
