Judicial temperament describes a judge’s general attitude toward the law, litigants and other judges.
Judicial temperament means that a judge exhibits “compassion, decisiveness, open-mindedness, sensitivity, courtesy, patience, freedom from bias and commitment to equal justice.
The members of the Town of Warwick Police Benevolent Association having observed many years of conduct, statements, lack of courtesy and freedom from bias, in and out of court, feel that Gregory Hoover lacks the judicial temperament for the position of Town Justice in the Town of Warwick.
Our members have historically maintained a neutral position in local elections. We feel it was important to make a statement to the public about this candidate.
We urge Town of Warwick residents to research candidates carefully to make an informed choice for this very important position.
JOHN HARTER, PRESIDENT
ON BEHALF OF THE WARWICK POLICE BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION
