Andrews has paid dues

I am writing in support of Dave Andrews for judge.

I have read many letters on the editorial page supporting candidates for judge.

I could author another letter and explain how Andrews has practiced law for 36 years.

I could describe the countless hours he has invested in so many community service organizations.

I could describe how he skillfully held a position of leadership in those organizations.

I could even enumerate the varied and vast legal qualifications that make him the most qualified candidate.

Instead, I am going to describe what not everyone witnesses that qualifies Andrews to be judge. I have worked closely with him over the last eight years as Altoona Area High School mock trial advisor, and I have seen his character, witnessed his integrity and admired the dedication of a man to his community.

This is why Dave Andrews deserves to be our next judge.

James S. Lowe, Altoona
