LETTER: Endorsing Beverly Aho for county judge

To the Editor:


Please join me in voting for Beverly Aho for Hennepin Country Judge on Aug. 12.

As a long-time resident of Maple Grove and civil litigation attorney at Hellmuth & Johnson in Edina, I know that District Court judges are far more likely to have an impact on your daily lives than most high-profile political figures. They are the primary decision-makers in the vast majority of cases, ranging from divorces to business disputes, and from traffic issues to major felonies. If you ever find yourself facing such a situation, it matters a great deal that your case is heard before a judge who is well-versed in the law and is experienced, ethical, impartial and fair.

Aho embodies all these traits. I’ve known her since law school, and her legal knowledge, principled values, diligence and experience are ideally suited for the challenging and important job of District Court judge. She also has an MBA, and co-founded a technology business. As an active volunteer with her husband Brad, who serves on Eden Prairie City Council, they raised three great kids among other accomplishments. She now has a distinguished career as a litigation, business and real estate attorney.

I strongly endorse Aho for Judge on August 12! www.beverlyahoforjudge.com.
