Letter to the editor: Matt Schimizzi cares about Westmoreland
Being a teenage high school student with an interest in politics and law has its ups and downs. You have a lot of people discouraging you, or making it seem as though your opinion doesn’t matter.
I will be voting for the second time in May, so I pay close attention to local races such as Westmoreland County Court of Common Pleas judge. A lot of us look for similar things in a judge: We want someone who is unbiased, experienced and trustworthy, someone who truly cares for the law and the people of Westmoreland County.
For me, that person is Matt Schimizzi. I’ve known him for several years, and he has always made me feel as though my opinion and my dreams matter. He didn’t shut me down like many others had: He listened to me and showed that he cares.
This is why I’d like to express my continued gratitude and support for Matt Schimizzi and his campaign to become judge.
