Stance not ‘political'
I believe the news story “Attorney seeks to bring political stance to Westmoreland bench” (Feb. 1 and TribLIVE.com) about Greensburg attorney Harry Smail Jr. announcing his Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court candidacy is misleading.
Mr. Smail understands the importance of judges being impartial and fair. As a judge, Harry will always uphold the letter of the law and the Constitution. The experiences that Smail has had, in and out of the courtroom, will lead him to be fair in all cases.
His desire to protect the rights of our citizens based on the Constitution is not a political stance; it is what judges are sworn to do. How did we get to this point, where voicing support for the defense of our rights under the Constitution is labeled as “political”?
The writer is campaign manager for Harry Smail Jr.
