Julianne Woolard for Essex County State's Attorney
To the Editor:
For the first time in almost 20 years, Essex County voters have an alternate choice on the ballot for state's attorney, who acts as the county's chief law enforcement officer. Until now, Vincent Illuzzi, who runs the office in Orleans County rather than Essex, has held the position.
Ms. Woolard is a strong candidate. She is smart, dedicated, hardworking and always prepared. She's experienced as well, having practiced law on the criminal, juvenile and family dockets since 2010.
Most importantly, Ms. Woolard is utterly committed to Essex County and its citizens. If elected, she will bring the state's attorney's office back to the County, where it belongs. She's tough, fair and just what we need. It's time for a change. Vote Julianne Woolard for state's attorney in the Republican primary on Aug. 26.
