I can tell you I have lost all the respect I held for Gary by allowing in the very people he said he despised during his run as a Judge back in 04 (IIRC). Etling, Wright, Smock etc... all of these, he railed against. Now, he accepts the support and advice of these people. I assisted him back then because I believed in the man and felt him to be sincere but now I can see he did nothing more than political bait and switch to further his own cause. It disgusts me to see his campaign include the likes of Bob Wright and Joe Etling, freaking disgusts me! By allowing these people to help him get into an office of any sort shows his true character and his moral fiber. I know first hand what the prosecutors office was like under Bob Wright and even though Modesitt may have had a few minor blips here and there in the first term of his office, it is still 100 times better than anything we had when Wright was in and with Wright pushing Gary to get in, does anyone, even supporters of his, think that Wright and Etling won't be calling him for their clients?

Terry Modesitt has increased child support payments (a major plattform of success with Mullican and her reason to win it last election with Bob Wrights endorsement). If Modesittt has improved on her supposed high success, that is a positive for Modesitt. He has convicted 2 political figures in his first term, how many did Wright and the dems take on during his years? ZERO! Another win for Modesitt. Modesitt has a dedicated prosecuting attorney for children of abuse and victims of domestic violence, not just a hodge podge of people who have little training on how to handle these victims. That shows leadership and another win for Modesitt. Modesitt is supported and most of the police force enjoy working along side of Terry (based on their unions support for Modesitt) because he values their opinions and prosecutes cases they work so hard to put together. The last prosecutor can't add that to their resume, can they? Another positive for Terry.
Quite honestly, what is the negatives that Terry Modesitt has had while in office? Being part time? Having signs in Mike Ellis' business locations? Having deputy prosecutors? That he has a private practice? Really?? Thats all?

Rider is being supported by Bob Wright and Joe Etling, is that a good thing? How many "cozy political machinists" does Rider have yard signs in? Rider as a fulltime prosecutor will it equal a better job than what Terry has given this county? How? So Gary won't have a private practice while being a prosecutor but Terry does and that will automatically make things better? If you were choosing an attorney for a criminal case, would you want A modesitt or a Rider arguing in court for your cause?

Again I will say Terry may have made a few small missteps along his first term as an elected official, none of those mistakes cost anyone their lives nor has he ever been reprimanded by his peers and governing body, that distinction belongs to one Gary Rider and the group he has chosen to back him, we already know how this group operates. No way can I say anything positive about allowing Gary Rider in as our prosecutor. My vote will once again go for Terry Modesitt. I refuse to go backwards in this system that is so broken in so many other areas.

some of the things i have heard that Gary Rider and his supporters are doing is unforgivable. it truly sickens me to think that these kind of things still happen. why cant these people just let others support who they want without making up lies about people. i have lost all respect for Rider and his supporters.

I heard a rumor that Gary Rider's commitee has been writing the letters to the editor. They then find elderly people in the democratic party and get them to put their names on the letters. In my opinion, Mr. Rider is a prime example of the dirty politics that have destroyed people's faith in Terre Haute politics.

I have heard an old saying, "If you give the devil enough rope he'll hang himself" Judge Rider is not the devil. Terry you have played it cool, nice job. Let those morons scramble, pull out all the dirty tricks, lies, etc. and they will seal their own fate.

I don't approve of exploiting others tragic losses. I do support protecting women from the abusive men in their lives. Beverly Weir's death at the hands of a man with a record of previous abuse is only too common. A man with so little sensitivity to the safety of abused women does not belong in the Prosecutor's Office [period]. Support Terry Modesitt and CODA.

More to the point, be on the lookout for women in harm's way. Tell them there's support and help. It could make all the difference in the world.
