I served with Tom McDonald for four years on Janesville City Council and I feel strongly that Tom will make an excellent judge for Rock County. Job of a judge requires knowledge of the law, remaining cool under pressure, being able to control the court room, and always thinking about the long term impact of decisions that are made. Tom McDonald has these qualities.
Over the years, I have seen Tom stay cool under pressure, study the issues thoroughly, offer solutions, and take positions which were sometimes seen as unpopular, but were done with the best long-term interest of our community in mind. All while remaining respectful to his fellow councilmembers, staff, and to those who came to speak to the council.
It is no secret that Tom looks young but underneath that youthful appearance I have gotten to know a person that has shown more maturity and ability than people much older in age. I hope that on February 21 you will join me in voting for Tom McDonald for Rock County judge.
