Letter to the editor: Vekos deserves prosecutor job

It is high time to have a juvenile law practitioner in the State’s Attorney’s Office. The state’s attorney is not just our top criminal prosecutor, but is also responsible for filing petitions for truancy, delinquency and for deciding whether to seek Department for Children and Families (DCF) custody in child abuse and neglect cases. 

Eva Vekos happens to be the candidate with the most criminal law experience, but she also has the knowledge and experience to help guide the DCF to make smarter choices regarding Addison County kids and their families. Please join me in voting for Eva Vekos to be our first female Addison County State’s Attorney in November!

Sarah Star, Esq.
