Dan McCarthy Believes His Experience Makes the Difference
I asked Lehigh County Commissioner Dan McCarthy, who's running for judge, why voters should choose him over Doug Reichley.
Well, it goes down to experience, Bernie. Essentially, I've been a practicing attorney for more than 35 years. I've had a lot of clients. I've had a lot of cases, and I represent a lot of causes.
The experience I have is very broad - civil, criminal, orphans' court, municipal, all areas of the law. It is that kind of experience, that I have, that I believe distinguishes me from my opponent, who's been a full-time legislator for 9 years.
He's been well-known in his District. Many of the people in his District, though, are our good friends and neighbors from Berks County. My constituency has been Lehigh County.
I'm working part-time for the citizens of Lehigh County now. I'd like to ask my employers to permit me to work for them full-time and be a judge, a good judge, a fair judge, and take my experience and knowledge of the community and do a good job there.
