On November 5th, we will choose a new Perrysburg Municipal Court judge to continue the honorable legacy of Judge Dwight Osterud.  No one is better suited or better qualified to continue that legacy than Tom Mackin.  For over 20 years, he has practiced law at all judicial levels, demonstrating his expertise in the areas vitally important to the municipal court.  He is well versed on the court's responsibilities and past accomplishments and has seen the critical importance of treating all before the court with fairness and dignity, while ensuring swift and appropriate justice in all court matters.
Serving on Perrysburg City Council for 15 years, Tom demonstrates the confidence his community has in his leadership expertise and his commitment to their needs. He has represented them effectively on the Toledo Metropolitan Council of Governments, serving on three of its leadership boards.  His leadership skills are unmatched.
Tom is equally well respected among his peers.  Ms. Mack's campaign materials have recently stated she is the "most highly recommended" candidate, but she overlooked the complete poll results of the Toledo Bar and Wood County Bar Associations. She is in fact the most "not recommended" candidate in both polls of her peers. Tom is overwhelmingly the most recommended candidate for the position of judge when all recommendation categories are tallied.  Complete results of both polls are available on the bar association websites.
Tom is here for us, generously sharing his talents and personal dedication while volunteering within his community.  He is highly experienced and knowledgeable, demonstrating all the necessary skills to manage a strong, effective municipal court and to provide a safe and secure community.  He alone exemplifies the ideals the municipal court has nurtured for decades.  These are all overwhelming reasons to elect Tom Mackin Perrysburg Municipal Court Judge.
