Backs Marquess for County Attorney

October 15, 2018
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Letter to the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Michael Marquess for Tama County Attorney. I was a police officer in Toledo from 2007 to 2012, during which time Mr. Marquess served as the assistant Tama County attorney.

During this time we were able to work together on many occasions, and Mr. Marquess would make it a point to do regular ride-alongs with all the law enforcement agencies in the county. This gave him the ability to see, up close and personal, what the law enforcement officers in Tama County dealt with on a regular basis. Not only during these ride alongs, but 24/7, he was willing to answer legal questions for us and discuss the law and how it was applied in the real world to help us be better at our jobs and also to protect the rights of the citizens of Tama County.

It was also during these ride-alongs and during the time spent working prosecutorial cases with him that I was able to witness the true compassion he displays towards victims of crimes. I was able to see how deeply he cared for justice, was able to see that he cared about conscientiously prosecuting crimes to an appropriate extent. And I very obviously could see that he was a dedicated servant to his profession. Not only is he dedicated, but he is respectful, attentive, and level-headed.

No matter your political affiliation, I invite you to confidently vote for Michael Marquess for Tama County Attorney.
