To the editor:
There has been a significant reporting concerning Sullivan County Family Court Judge Michael McGuire. While it is most unfortunate that some of his actions lend to the current outcry, they do not warrant a “character assassination” to an individual who has served his community with his efforts.
What needs to be stated in this matter is that there is full transparency as nothing was hidden. Also, there is an appeal process pending that could be interesting.
As for the appointment of Judge McGuire to the position of County Attorney (and he would be a good one), that is a matter for the Sullivan County Legislature.
I commend the editors and reporters of this newspaper for their objectivity and factual presentation of the issues. It is the readers' responsibility what to believe in this matter and not to be swayed by biased reporting.
