I was a teacher at Rhinelander High School for 35 years. It makes me proud to see a local student stay in the area after graduation from college and to gain success in his profession.
I have watched the progress of John O’Melia since he was in high school. His work ethic was never more evident than his being named MVP on the Rhinelander football team as a 145 pound hard-nosed defensive back. That work ethic continued as a lawyer, and I know him to be enthusiastic, outgoing and fair. He is driven, yet with a sense of compassion and an all important sense of humor. John is a genuinely good person who would do anything for a friend. These are some of the traits that make for a good judge.
To me, it’s a good idea to back John O’Melia for Oneida County Circuit Judge.
