Richard Ingram, candidate for Magistrate Court Chief Judge in Columbia County, is the man for the job. I have known Richard personally and professionally for 15 years and while his calm demeanor and smooth even temper alone would get my vote, he offers so much morelots more!
Richard is a man of steadfast integrity, impartial fairness, and unwavering ethicsprofessionalism that we need in our Courts. He is one of those rare candidates who are actually running for office because of a sincere sense of duty and strong desire to serve. An excellent listener, he is sensitive to the needs of all and is an avid seeker of justice. This became readily apparent in the state-wide publicized daycare mop bucket tragedy where the toddler suffered significant brain damage. Richard Ingram was that mother's attorney and spent vast amounts of time on the case which resulted in new state legislation governing children's daycare operations. His fee? Zero. He is respectful to all and not condescending plus he is one of our owna lifelong resident of the CSRA.
The above-mentioned assets and qualities along with his honesty, years of courtroom experience and knowledge of law easily wins my vote. The citizens of Columbia County will be glad to have elected such a fine public official. If this were a case of the position seeking the candidate, then the election wouldn't be necessary.
