Culpeper’s Paul Walther held in high esteem by other commonwealth’s attorneys
© Culpeper TimesI write to urge Culpeper citizens to support Paul Walther for Commonwealth's Attorney.
Paul and his family have been part of this community for over 20 years.
Paul knows public service because he grew up with examples of leadership in his own family.
Paul's father was a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps and was appointed by President Gerald Ford to the National Labor Relations Board.
Paul worked in the Reagan administration for the Department of Labor in the 1980s after law school.
Paul Walther has worked as a prosecutor for two decades to keep our community safe from drunk drivers, rapists and child molesters. One example of his leadership is the case of the Commonwealth v. Michael Kilby in 2008. He successfully prosecuted Michael Kilby for drunk driving that resulted in the death of a Madison county elementary school teacher in 2007.
Paul ensured that the defendant serve at least 10 years in prison for this negligent and reckless act. Paul convinced the Circuit Court to sentence above the model sentencing guidelines.
Paul Walther is held in high esteem by his peers and colleagues and often looked to for guidance and council. His fellow Commonwealth's Attorneys in Orange, Madison, Fluvanna and Greene have all endorsed his candidacy.
The victims of crime in our community that he has assisted have endorsed him and written letters of support.
I urge you to vote for Paul Walther on November 6, 2012.
Senator Bryce Reeves
Commonwealth of Virginia
