Tegan is the better candidate without question!! He has been a judge and has lived in the Keya for many years. He is not a recent transplant, He knows the Keys and is well respected.

Tegan is the better candidate without question! He has lived in the Keys for many years and is not a recent transplant. He has been a respected judge and lawyer, as well as a recent Bocce champ! My vote will go to Mr. Slaton!!

Tegan is by far the best candidate. What is comes down to is judgment. Manny would make a good State Attorney but completely lacks judicial temperment. His views and temperment are completely outside the values of the keys. I have practiced law for 20 years in Monroe County and know the people running for office very well on a personal and professional basis. I have never felt stronger about a judicial race than this one and Manny is running for the wrong office. It isnt personal. I have the best interests in the community at heart.

Tegan is the best qualified. Being a good judge does not come from being a good prosecutor. A judge must be fair and impartial. Tegan's experience provides him with that impartiality.

Tegan Slaton is the most qualified, has the most experience and is the most well suited to be a judge.

Not only is Tegan much more experienced at the judicial level, but fairness and honesty are his traits I value most.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Tegan Slaton both personally and professionaly and can attest to his vast amount of experience and dedication to his profession and also a fairness to all that have had dealings with him. Tegan would truly be an asse to the bench if elected, and a judge we could be proud of for many years to come. We need to make the right choice now, not have regrets in the future. Tegan for Judge "THE RIGHT CHOICE"

My vote goes to Tegan Slaton. His disposition in the courtroom is positive, his work ethic exceptional, and his vigorous involvement with several local organizations continuously over the years demonstrates he has a deep care and commitment for this community.

Tegan Slaton www.TeganSlaton.com is the obvious standout in this race. Manny Madruga www.MannyMadruga.com is just setting himself up to run for State Attorney in 2012. What about the other attorneys who are also running? Sure, Julio Margalli www.JulioMargalli.com is staging a comback after his embarassing third-place loss for County Commissioner in 2000. Pretty face on lots of signs. Mary VanBrooke www.MaryVanBrooke.com is trying to outdo Behr of the embattled Vernis & Bowling firm www.CriminalDefenseAttorneys360.com and their double/triple billing issues with the School board. There is only one winner in this race: my bet is with the sign printers. Manny Madruga has his signs out already; so does Julio Margalli. Funny signs are currently illegal in most of the County because it is too early. Who do you want for Judge: someone who disregards the law just to splash their name around, or a straight-shooter who plays by the rules? Vote for Tegan and lets get this over with in August.

I have know Tegan and Manny for almost 18 years. Manny has limited experience in the judicial system, and limited social interaction with other members of the community. Tegan has the legal experience and extensive community involvement to be a fair and impartial judge. Tegan Slaton should be our next judge, because he is the most qualified.

It is rare in this profession to find someone who is "good for goodness's sake." That's Tegan. No hidden agendas here. Add to that exceptional knowledge of the law, and experience both on the bench (as magistrate) and as a practitioner, and you have the makings of a great Circuit Judge.
