As a member of the York County Bar Association for close to 10 years, I was disappointed to read the judicial retention survey results concerning the Honorable Sheryl Ann Dorney. I enthusiastically support Judge Dorney's retention because she has consistently demonstrated impartiality, outstanding legal ability and temperament while I have known her.

First and foremost, Judge Dorney follows the law. She places great importance on precedent when adjudicating cases. Moreover, she shows compassion to those who appear before her, even the ones she sentences to significant periods of incarceration. Lastly, she still loves being a judge, even after doing it for more than 20 years.

Let's not lose a wonderful judge who offers our county so much. Join me in voting to retain Judge Dorney on Election Day.
