Vast experience with legal issues

On Tuesday, you can vote for a very unique candidate — one who is extremely experienced and qualified to be judge of Vigo County Superior Court Division 2. From my experience working with Lucky Reddy for several years, she is an accomplished and extraordinary lawyer.

Lucky graduated at the top of her Indiana University law school class and has experience working on many lawsuits, from the initial interview with a client to courtroom trials and appeals. When it comes to her knowledge of criminal and civil law, Lucky Reddy served as a law clerk for Indiana Supreme Court Justice Frank Sullivan Jr. In that position, she researched and helped in writing Supreme Court decisions on civil, criminal and even death penalty cases and knows how to apply the law to the factual situations presented to her.

Lucky Reddy’s vast experience in all areas of law will allow her to bring intelligence, strong communication skills, unique analytical ability along with a sense of fairness to the people of Vigo County if elected to serve as judge in Vigo County.

On Tuesday, when you vote, please remember Lucky Reddy. She will be a very fine judge.

Finance reports tell the story

I thank the Tribune-Star for printing the list of campaign contributions to the miscreants some voters believe are their representatives. Obviously, we can see one guy represents the medical and other industries.  

After 28 years in Congress, Mike Lofgren wrote a book, “The Party is Over” which explains the workings of Washington. In it he writes, “Far away from the political stage of make-believe, and behind the closed doors of corporate America, is where the real show goes on, and where the real decisions are made.”

Cheers for the ‘Music Man’

This past Friday I had the opportunity to attend the musical at Terre Haute North Vigo High School, the “Music Man.” I took my father-in-law, Clair Woodward, who has tuned the VCSC pianos (and many others) for years. We had a fabulous evening.

It is amazing how Ms. Michelle Azar involves so many students. The casting was excellent, the choreography impressive, and the set was elaborate. Most impressive was the skill of the students as actors, singers and musicians.

We were thoroughly entertained for an evening, but I am sure these young performers will remember this experience all of their lives.
