Letter: Candidate’s commitment to family, community makes him right choice

From: Jessica Smith


I believe that you should vote for Scott Andrews for Bartholomew Circuit Court judge. It is critical that we have a judge we can trust because the decisions made in Circuit Court directly impact our community.

Before you vote this year, please take time to get to know your candidate. I’m confident that if you get to know Scott, you will not be disappointed. There are many reasons this is going to be the candidate I choose for this Circuit Court judge.

During my 10 years working at Turning Point Domestic Violence Services and serving on the Bartholomew County Substance Abuse Council, I was able to interact with the entire Andrews family. Long before this campaign started, Scott had demonstrated his love for this community. He is the hometown candidate, born and raised here, and deeply rooted in the issues that surround us. He is honest, and I believe he will make the right choices because I trust his understanding of domestic violence and family issues.

Also, when it comes to the current pressing drug issues in our community, there is no other candidate than Scott. This has been the primary focus of his campaign since he started. He and his wife have fought and advocated for substance abuse issues for many years. I have personally watched them dedicate themselves to the issue. During my time on the Substance Abuse Council, Scott and his wife, Dawn, devoted not only time but funding to help make sure things happened.

His devotion to his family and community should be a strong statement of what he has to offer as judge. This is the candidate I would tell you to vote for, to trust. We need Scott Andrews in Circuit Court. Please vote for him in the upcoming primary. He is the right candidate for the job.
