When you come to the Judicial Ticket on your ballot you will see first the heading, For Judge of the Circuit Court, 23rd. Judicial Circuit. The Democratic nominee is Gray Silver, Jr and the Republican Nominee is Jacob Schleuss. YOU must vote for one of these two candidates for Judge of the 23rd. Circuit. You cannot vote for both of them. Next on your ballot will be the heading, For Judge of the Circuit Court, 31st. Judicial Circuit, which is the new provided for bYthe Legislature. The Democratic nom- Inee vote for one of these two canal/dates both of them. I want to make this clear to the voters. I am not running against Judge Silver. I am not running against Jacob Schleuss. My opponent is Luke Terry, who is running on the Republican Ticket. I am taking this means to ask you for your support and vote in the coming election. I wsa born in Martinsburg, West Virginia in 1922 the son of the late Carroll T. Sencindlver and Estelle MeDaniel Sencindiver. I attended local schools and graduated from West Vir- ginia Law School in 1946. I have been practicing law in these three Panhandle C~nt/es ever since. In 1957 I was married to the form er Doris Lee Sage of Martinsburg and we reside at 212 North Maple Avenue in Martinsburg, with our daughter, Vanessa, who is now ten years old and is a student in the 5th grade at Burke Street School. E XPERIENCE: In 1946 I was appointed City Attorney of Martinsburg for a two year term and was ~tPointed for another two year Term in 1948. the General Election held in November, 1948 I was elected Prosecuting Attorney of Berkeley County and I resigned as City Attorney to be sworn in as Prosecuting At- torney I have been re-elected as Prosecuting Attorney of Berkeley County at five success- ~e general elections and am now completing Y 20th year as Prosecuting Attorney of erkeley County I have been present and handled cases for the State at 60 Terms of Uourt in Berkeley County, handling all kinds of eases from murder cases to simple assault ~ases. I have also worked closely with the reuit Court and the Juvenile Court for the t~ast 20 years and am familiar with the many Problems that are facing the Courts today. appeal to the cupidity or prejudice of the appointing or electing power; he should not announce in advance his conclusions of law on disputed issues to secure class support, and he should do nothing while a candidate to create the impression that if chosen, he will administer the office with bias, partial- ity or improper discumnation. As you can see this rule attemps to pre- vent a candidate for Judge from having any platform in the political sense. However, the office of Judge belongs to the people and in our Democracy they are chosen by the people and that means a candidate for Judge has to "run" for office. I can only state to you my philosophy since we have had the Warren Supreme Court in Washington I have seen many cases where convicted crinmals have been released from the Penintentiary on slight technical- ities, the Warren Court claiming that the constitutional rights of the crimnal have been violated. I believe in the philosophy that the Courts of our country should pay more attention to the safety and security of our citizens and less attention should be paid to technicalities that allow the crlmnal to escape justice. IN CONCLUSION: I urge you to examine carefully the ad run in this paper hy my opponent, Luke Terry, and to examine carefully thls ad and to study our qualifications m the field of legal experience and experience in public office and then make up your mind who you want to vote for. Please go to the polls on November 5, 1968 and vote your choice. I am taking this means to ask for your support and your vote. If you desire to vote for me put your X m the square like it is reprs- sented below. 0~RGANIZATIONS: ~, I am a member of the Presbyterian pnUrch, have been a member of the Amer- l.Can Legion for 23 years, the Loyal Order of tee Moose, Berkeley County Bar Association, ~ing a former President of that body, the est Virginia State Bar, the West Virginia ~'rosecuting Attorneys Association, National bistrict Attorneys Association, Associate ~eraber of the Fraternal Order of Police, National Association of Counties, and Chief Legal Section of Berkeley County Civil Uefense Unit. ~TFORM: st Canon 30 of the Code of Judicial Ethics .[ates that a candidate for JUdicial position ~aOuld not make or suffer others to make Jar him, promises of conduct in office which CIRCUIT COURT FOR JUDGE OF THE For Judge 31st Judicial District Marttnsburg, W.
