The following letter was sent to Royal Oak Patch by former Royal Oak City Commissioner Andrew Prentice:
Way down the ballot in this election lays an important choice for the citizens of Royal Oak. The election of a replacement for Judge Daniel Sawicki is one that carries great importance for the people of our hometown.
Make no mistake, Judge Sawicki has done this town proud with his service.
For over 20 years, as both an elected official and private citizen, I have admired how he has served this city with both toughness and grace. His replacement must both be time tested and know the people and mores of Royal Oak well.
Carlo Ginotti is uniquely qualified to carry on Judge Sawicki’s role. As a former City Commissioner he knows our neighborhoods and the people of this town. As an Assistant Attorney General for the people of Michigan, he knows the law and how to apply it. He would serve our city with both fairness as well as a no-nonsense approach to administering justice.
Congratulations Judge Sawicki on a well deserved retirement for your years of service. As the final days of this chaotic election wind down, I hope you will consider strongly the qualifications of Carlo Ginotti tobe Royal Oak’s next district Judge.
Former Royal Oak City Commissioner
