Appel works with child advocates

We represent various aspects of Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, a child-focused environment that has been decades in the making. We know George Appel because he has worked for over 15 years holding our county’s worst criminals accountable, providing justice for the most vulnerable victims and keeping our communities safe. He is a mentor, a judge pro tem, a community leader, and one of the most honest, genuine people you will ever meet.

Because we have worked at Dawson Place since its inception, we know that George Appel is the only judicial candidate we have ever seen set foot in Dawson Place. He has worked in the Special Assault Unit with us, day in and day out. The types of cases we work are perhaps the most horrific. These cases require a special kind of prosecutor who knows the law, holds the offender accountable, and deals with each victim in a sensitive and caring manner.

We are supporting George Appel not only because of the exceptional endorsements he has received from local judges, law enforcement, firefighters, community leaders and families, but because he is the only candidate with the integrity, experience and knowledge to do an outstanding job. It is not a coincidence that the amazing person for whom our center was named, Seth Dawson, solely endorses George Appel for Position 6. Please join all of us in electing George Appel as our next Superior Court judge.
