Dear Mr. Rivera:
By this letter, I am very pleased that you decided to run for the position of Judge in the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County during the 2023 primary election. I believe you will add much diversity and experience to the Court of Common Pleas.
I have known you since you began as a young lawyer in Chester County. You are currently a sole practitioner, and previously worked for excellent firms, including the MacElree Harvey law firm. You also served as an Assistant Public Defender.
You have a broad general practice that emphasized in litigation and other matters.
You have been involved in the community of Chester County, not only through the Bar Association but through many civic activities. You have been involved with Rotary Clubs, you coached mock trials for the Kennett High School, you served on the Kennett Board of Education, you have been active in the past with the Boy Scouts of America, you served at the YMCA as a Board Member. You have served on the Chester County Water Authority and have served on the Department of Children Youth and Family Services’ Advisory Committee, you served as a Board Member for many years for the La Comunidad Hispana, among other matters.
Besides excellent trial experience, you also have your Master’s in trial advocacy from Temple University’s School of Law. I believe with your broad experience and diverse background you would bring much needed wisdom and understanding to the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County. I strongly endorse your candidacy.
Very truly yours,
Samuel C. Stretton
