Editor, The Beacon:

I am a Florida Supreme Court-certified county mediator in my 14th year of doing pro bono mediations for the 7th Judicial Circuit.

I have had the opportunity to work with many fine judges. One of the judges I have the most respect for is Judge Wes Heidt.

It is a privilege to work with a judge who consistently demonstrates fairness and patience to all who enter his courtroom.

Judge Heidt is a man of honor and integrity, who knows and follows the law.

Keep Judge Heidt … a judge for all the right reasons.

Join me in voting for Wes Heidt, Volusia County Judge, Group 5, on Aug. 23.
