opinion: Experience in the law enforcement field makes Jim Fink ideal candidate for Circuit Court judge
I am writing to encourage your readers to vote for Jim Fink for Washtenaw County Circuit Court judge on Nov. 6. Jim will be an asset to the Circuit Court bench and great public servant for the citizens of Washtenaw County.
Throughout his life and career, Jim has dedicated himself to the service of others. He is a former Washtenaw County sheriff’s commander with 22 years law enforcement experience. He sits on the Michigan Domestic Violence Prevention and Treatment Board and formerly served as chair. He is a member and past chair of the Dawn Farm Board of Trustees and received Dawn Farm’s 2012 Founders Award. Jim also is part of the Hope Clinic “One Hope” Capital Campaign Committee, and is active in his church and the community. Jim understands that Judges serve the community by treating all the people who appear before them with respect, honesty, integrity, compassion, empathy, and above all else, impartiality. Jim Fink has conducted his personal and professional life according to these principles and is clearly the best candidate for Circuit Judge.
