Leffler: Who is being truthful

In response to Pollyann Johnston’s letter to the editor, I was also at that Middletown judicial debate and Shanda Harry misrepresented what was said.

The question was “why you wanted to be judge?” Shanda Harry said she always wanted to be a judge, but gave no further meaningful response.

Don Anderson said there are two reasons. First is that he has done all aspects in the justice system. From deputy sheriff, to private attorney and to district attorney. He said he has accomplished what he set out to do in the DA’s Office. He also said at this point the position of judge is best suited for him and the community.

Anderson then said the second reason is something you will not hear from any other candidate. He said it was for financial reason. His salary would increase by $70,000 a year and his retirement would double. This has to be a motivating factor for any working person.

Harry claims she has not considered the $130,000-a-year raise she will receive and having her retirement jump from a little over $3,000 a month to over $18,000 a month?

Now you must ask who is being truthful and who is not?
