We had a lively and informative event with a good talk from States Attorney candidate Strong.  He told us how he feels about crime and punishment both personally and how he is able and willing to do follow the rules handed down by the State legislature whether he agrees or not.  The public really seems to support strong sentencing, while the legislature seems to be in the saving taxpayer money on punishment which does not appear to rehabilitate.  No one really voiced any solution.  We are in an increasingly liberal environment of shortening sentences and forgiving crimes which simply scares law abiding citizens.  While strong sentences don’t appear capable on their own of stopping crime, they do stop individuals while they are incarcerated.  No one is getting a good result.  Both Mr. Strong and his opponent, Mr. Di Gregory, have all the necessary tools, knowledge and experience for the job.  We wish both of these candidates a fortunate election outcome.  It is a difficult decision for voters, but the citizens will win either way.

Meanwhile the Candidates for Judge of Orphan’s Court continue to impress us with the dedication and professionalism.  They really are common citizens, properly trained, that give meaningful assistance to every family that comes in contact with them.  If you live here long enough, your family or your attorney will inevitably come before the Orphan’s court to probate a will or to create the needed documents to settle your estate.  The pay isn’t very good, but the human stories are truly excellent.  What a great way to meet nearly every family in the area while providing needed help and direction during difficult family times.    We have 4 total candidates running for the three seats on the Orphan’s Court panel.  We wish them all the best and know that whatever three win, the citizens of Kent County will have good people in place when a will needs to be probated.  Everyone appreciates their continued service.
