The first of these endorsements went to Judge Richard McMonagle.
From the endorsement:
McMonagle has shown he's a more-than-able jurist for more than two decades,serving as presiding judge for half that time. . . He runs an efficient docket and he's earned a reputation for fairness and dedication. He deserves another six-year term.
Sutula has been dubbed a criminal's worst nightmare. And she rightly has little tolerance for unprepared or underinformed lawyers. The judge's no-nonsense style doesn't always serve her well, but she is a smart, diligent jurist with a keen understanding of the law. . . her [opponent's] presence in this race is tainted by evidence that she was encouraged to run by her boss, County Prosecutor Bill Mason, solely for the purpose of helping another candidate in the Democratic primary. Sutula's record on the General Division bench argues convincingly for her election to a six-year term at Probate.
Remember these endorsed candidates, along with Justice Evelyn Stratton, Justice Maureen O'Connor (the PD has yet to endorse in these Supreme Court races), Brian Moriarty, Robert McClelland, and Sam Zingale when you vote this fall.
