Experience makes Greene a better choice
To the Editor:
In most professions work experience is a major factor as to whether you get the job or not. I believe experience in the courtroom is especially important for a judicial position and that’s why I cast my vote for Justin Greene for District Court judge.
While Kaleb Wingate seems to be a fine young man with lots of family friends, I do not think he’s experienced enough to be on the bench at this time. He worked for less than five years in the DA’s office and he’s only been in private practice since 2019.
Justin has 15 years of civil and criminal trial experience in all seven counties in District 30 and he is currently serving as legal counsel for both the Department of Social Services in Swain and Graham counties. He’s served in that capacity for the Swain County DSS since 2010.
In addition, Justin has endorsements from two respected retired District Court judges — Steven Bryant and James Downs.
A District Court judge must know many areas of the law and that type of knowledge is only gained through experience. Justin Greene will be ready on day one. I urge you to cast your vote for him.
