On March 17 I will be casting my vote for Karen DeSanto Kellogg for Ashland County Juvenile Court Judge.

We are a society plagued with very serious issues affecting our youth today, and it is imperative that we elect the right person for this job.

Karen's many years of experience in family law along with her sincere desire to advocate for programs aimed at not only youth, but entire families will make things better in Ashland County.

The juvenile justice system plays a major role in our society today.

I urge all of you to vote for Karen to ensure the best possible programs are in place to make the system the best it can be.
