I’m retired from Maine’s court system, and I write as one with years of court experience to applaud Judge Susan Longley’s improvements to the Waldo County Probate Court system.

I especially appreciate her smart, cost-savings mediation program so that families can have the more affordable chance to resolve differences in mediation before exacerbating their differences and adding to their costs with litigation.

As one now in my 70s, I also value knowing that we have a judge who goes the extra mile to learn the specific needs and values of adults in need of special protections.

During her years as our state senator and as our judge, Longley, Democratic candidate for judge of probate, is a completely dedicated, skilled and caring public servant.

I’ve seen a lot of courts and judges, and I see Longley as a keeper. I ask your vote to keep Longley working for our families.
