Editor, Times-Union:
We are writing to express our support for Stephen P. Harris as candidate for Superior Court No. 1 judge. Steve has been a life-long friend. Being our friend, however, does not qualify him for the judgeship. What does qualify Steve for this position is his 26 years of experience in general law practice.
During his career he worked with many aspects of the law – affecting individuals such as juvenile, divorce, adoptions, real estate, bankruptcy and creditor rights. In addition to his law degree, Steve also has earned his MBA, which broadens his understanding of challenges and issues our local businesses are facing. Steve’s experiences also include serving numerous times as judge pro tempore demonstrating his familiarity with court practice, procedures and legal protocol.
Foremost, Steve represents what is good about our county.  He has been on the board of directors of Combined Community Services, Warsaw/Kosciusko County Chamber of Commerce, and served as chair/president of the Kosciusko County Public Defender Board. In addition to his civic activities, Steve is a devoted husband to Carla and father to Kara. He has been very engaged as a band parent supporting Kara and her bandmates at WCHS.
During our long friendship we have known Steve to be a caring, compassionate and fair man who has the intelligence, work ethic and mental fortitude to be the Superior Court No. 1 judge.  Please exercise your right to vote on May 6. Please join us in voting for Stephen P. Harris.
