Re: “Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend the election of George Bell as District Court Judge in Mecklenburg County. It has been my privilege to know George as both a client and a friend for over 5 years. He has a genuine love for the law as well as respect and empathy for people he deals with in his profession. I have known him to be a person who is dedicated, and works tirelessly and energetically for his clients. He will undoubtedly bring these qualities to the bench, if elected.

He will be a breath of fresh air to our local judiciary, promoting accessibility that we have not usually seen from those on the bench. Additionally, he will demonstrate compassion to all while taking care to apply the law in a manner that is fair and equitable to all parties without regard to status or influence.

These are qualities that are sorely lacking in many public officials in our current political situation. To start making a positive change, I would encourage all to "Ring the Bell for change" by joining me in supporting George Bell's candidacy.

Re: “Greed seen as the church's top problem — so why isn't Elevation angrier at pastor's excess?

What you need to do is leave this situation alone, because as I know for a fact even poor church's withold their pastor salaries from public view. In fact, it is the norm in most churches to not discuss salary. How much do you make since you don't think it is offensive to ask questions like this.
