Letter: Supports Ballou for 3rd District Kentucky Supreme Court

To the Editor:

The 3rd District has what’s become a usual sight in Kentucky politics.

On the one hand, there’s the professional politician.  On the right, a dedicated public servant who knows firsthand the true meaning of honor, service, and duty to one’s country.

Judge Dan Ballou has a distinguished military career, having begun by enlisting at the age of 18 in the United States Marine Corps.  Judge Ballou served his country in Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan.  Judge Ballou later retired from the Marine Corps Reserves as a Major.

Recently, I had the distinct pleasure to spend some time with Judge Ballou.  We broke bread together, prayed together, and fellowshipped.  Dan Ballou has a servant’s heart and a pure desire to serve his fellow Kentuckians.  I know Dan to be a devout follower of Jesus Christ.  I believe him to be a loving husband, dad, and faithful Christian.

“Blessed are the pure in heart;  for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8  This verse comes to mind when thinking of a way to describe Dan Ballou.  His love of God and his witness are clearly visible.

The qualities I’ve seen in Judge Ballou are real.  His desire to serve is sincere.

Dan Ballou is the The Genuine Article.  Please vote Dan Ballou for Kentucky Supreme Court.
