Open Forum: Holland a class act

I am writing my first-ever letter to the editor because I feel compelled to tell La Salle County about one candidate and one campaign that is above the fray. In a year when negativity and is the norm, Troy Holland is the exception.
 Troy is running for the circuit court judge in La Salle County. It is without hesitation I can tell you that he is the real deal. What you see is what you get: positivity, integrity, intelligence, diligence, and common sense.
 What I love about Troy as a candidate is that he walks door-to-door talking with people not just about his qualifications, but also about what he wants to do to improve our court system. Troy has a strong work ethic and will take action to enhance our county's judicial branch. His passion and respect for the law and others is a wonderful attribute. 
 Troy has run his campaign the way he has run his successful law firm, the way he lives his life daily, and the way he and his wife Aimee raise their children: with respect, class and grace. Troy was raised right here in La Salle County in a family that promotes uprightness and conviction. He has a good head on his shoulders, and if elected, Troy will serve our county proudly. 
 Having known Troy for many years, I have a perspective of him that the voters of LaSalle County don't always get to see. Troy is a good, solid person who is active in our community, school, and church. Troy has done so much to help those around him, but he's not one to boast about all of the hours he has spent doing this. Our community is blessed to have him, and La Salle County will be a better place with someone of Troy's caliber making decisions in our best interest.
 My vote in the race for judge of the 13th Judicial Circuit goes to Troy Holland, one of the finest and most capable persons I have ever had the pleasure to know. I urge you to vote for Troy Holland, too. 
 Nancy Jackson,

I have some doubts about Mr. Holland as a judge.
One, he is endorsed by Tom Templeton,
The sheriffs dept patroles I 80 along with La Salle , Peru and Princeton police dept, trolling for drugs. Yhey do this while crieng that they are understaffed and cannot handle A all of the county and cities problems.
Anyone who drives the interstates knows that trough La Salle and Bureau countys is aware that the 65 mph limit is just a starting nu. and 89- 85 is more common.

Number two. Would Jason be serving time if Troy had heard his case? Maybe, Maybe not.
Maybe not related. Maybe.

Those are two of a few questions.
