I’m writing to urge voters to support Oneida County District Attorney Mike Bloom for Circuit Court Judge on April 3.
Mike is by far the most qualified candidate, having worked for years on a daily basis in the Oneida County justice system as a public defender, defense attorney and more recently as District Attorney. Mike has been involved with YMCA of the Northwoods and worked mentoring high school students as the long-time attorney coach for the Rhinelander High School Mock Trial team. He will bring fairness, justice and a wealth of courtroom experience to Oneida County as Circuit Judge.
I’m concerned too about having two brothers monopolize the only two Circuit Court judge positions in Oneida County. Patrick O’Melia is already an Oneida Circuit Court Judge, and adding his brother John to the bench would be one too many O’Melias for me.
Mike Bloom is the best candidate for Oneida County, and that’s why I’m voting for him on April 3.
