It is MOST refreshing when good people stand up and offer the dedication to run for office.

All too often the best remain silent and find little time to devote to public service and positive results of our politcal process.

Having met Brian Barrett I found him willing to answer ANY question with a solid foundation of fairness and intelligence.

Hard when need be, yet open to each case without jaded callousness which often overcomes ANY judge.

Lets not forget the GOOD men when it comes time to vote as it affects ALL our community, our lives.

He should get a table saw instead. Much more useful.

This election is coming up soon. Judge Barrett is the best person for this job. Everyone can learn more about him at judgebarrett.com

I have met him and he is really sincere about being a judge and we need to keep him on the bench.

Ahhh, this was started by Patrick? Why would a Republican be supporting a Democrat?

Rossi's the Republican and Barrett is the Democrat?

If you ever saw Judge Barrett work you would know why. He is an excellent judge and a good person and parent as well. He will get my vote without a doubt. Very deserving to sit on the bench in Will County.

Patrick Markham met judge Barrett and his family at the chili cookoff at the Mokena VFW last year. Mr. Markham sat with Judge Barrett for a while talking about many different things. Mr. Markham said it was not about party, it was about the person.

Patrick Markham is right. Judge Barrett is the best candidate. Party means nothing in a judicial race.

Party means everything in a Judge. No one wants a LIBERAL Judge. We need conservative Judges in our courts. Nice guy or not I will chose a Republican Judge that will follow the constitution. Only one choice. Republican verses Democrat. We have had enough of Liberal Democrats running our courts. Vote Ray Rossi a proven conservative.

If those are your reasons, I can assure you that Bobbi and Judy are exactly the same... sincerely good people, have kids, are caring parents and active conservative Republicans. I have met them several times. While I am sure Barrett is a fine person too, I must support a point made out here. We do need to stop the Liberal law "making" judges out there today. That violates our Constitution yet no one goes against them once elected. I for one, have never seen a conservative Republican issue a law from the bench (maybe you have ?). So I prefer voting Conservative Republican... But that's me. All in all, may the best person win.

Voting party lines for a local judge race is idiotic. Judicial activism is in the eye of the beholder, and comments that lump all democrat judges into one group, and all republican judges into another group, is insane. Our country is doomed to live through partisan madness.
