Writers urge voters to reelect Cooperrider in Perry County


We are writing to ask Perry County voters to re-elect Judge Luann Cooperrider. It is so sad that David Humphrey has to go as far to slander a person and her family that has done so many good things for the children and families of Perry County. Her heart is full of love and compassion and what David Humphrey has done is wrong.

An October 17 story in The Times Recorder is interesting. It states that the Perry County Republican Party has stripped David Humphrey of their endorsement. May you need to ask "why."

We believe this is a vendetta against Judge Cooperrider due to a family matter involving David Humphrey that was played out in Judge Cooperrider's courtroom in 2003. This case involved an estate - Hillis vs. Humphrey.

Please take time to read the Times Recorder story and if you want to know more about Mr. Humphrey's court case, you can read it online at http://vlex.com/ vid21634961. This is all public record and we are not saying anything that hasn't already been proven.

So we ask that you think about what Judge Cooperrider has done for our county and our children and what David Humpfrey has done. Please re-elect Judge Luann Cooperrider for Perry County Probate Judge and Perry County Juvenile Court Judge.
