I am writing to urge support for District Attorney Michael Bloom in the Feb. 21 primary election for Oneida County Circuit Judge.
I have known Mike for more than 15 years, and have always been impressed by his qualities as a person and as a legal professional. He helped coach both of my sons on the Rhinelander High School Mock Trial team, and was an inspiration and a mentor to them both. My husband and I have sought Mike’s legal counsel when he served as a private attorney, and he was passionate, tenacious and successful in pursuit of justice.
Mike has served Oneida County as a public defender and as the current Oneida County District Attorney. I have the utmost confidence in his judgment, his fairness and his pursuit of justice. He has seen all sides of the criminal justice system in Oneida County. He has the best track record and the most experience in the Oneida County Court system of any candidate. He will be an independent, tough and fair as Oneida County Circuit Court Judge.
Mike will get my vote in the Tuesday, Feb. 21 primary, and in the general election on April 3.
Debra Durchslag, Rhinelander
