Monzo focused on family

| Monday, Nov. 6, 2017, 9:00 p.m.

My wife, Betty Ann, and I have known Lisa Monzo all of her life and we've known her parents, Dick and Janice Galloway, for more than 50 years. We believe strongly that Monzo should be the next Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court judge.

Monzo has 10 years' more legal experience than her opponent. Most importantly, she has broadly diverse legal experience, working at three law firms, teaching business law at Seton Hill University, and working in the juvenile justice system to strengthen it and assure the rights of victims and the community as well as the accused, all while raising two children who are models of accomplishment and success in their own right.

Significantly, Monzo has a career that shows she is the candidate most focused on the family. She has a passion for protecting children that she will be able to put to good use as a family court judge in Westmoreland County.

I know you will be impressed if you review her resume. This is the person we need for our next judge — fair, balanced and experienced, with a temperament and focus that will help Westmoreland County families for years to come.

We are proud to recommend Monzo to the voters of Westmoreland County.

James McHugh


TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
