The LuLac Edition #3438, February 24th, 2017
Attorney Stacey Acri, candidate for Magisterial District Judge for District 11-03-06 in the Mountain Top area, hosted her campaign kickoff event on February 15th at the American Legion Post 781. Residents from Mountain Top and surrounding communities were greeted by catered fare while they signed petitions, picked up campaign signs, or offered financial support, and children of all ages enjoyed face painting and balloon animals, as well as a mural for them to color.
Her mother, attorney Jane Acri, introduced the candidate to the crowd, showcasing Stacey’s roots here as a childhood resident of Walden Park and graduate of Crestwood High School. After graduating from King’s College, Stacey then attended Penn State Dickinson School of Law. Both work at Acri Law Offices in Wilkes-Barre, where they practice family law and estate planning.
In her prepared remarks, Stacey Acri recognized all the veterans in attendance, whom she commended for their years of service to the nation. Her speech focused on her legal career, which started in the Navy where she served as a Judge Advocate General nearly 20 years ago. “The Navy gave me a broad base of experience,” she said, noting she did everything from criminal and civil litigation to rules of engagement procedures for combat Marines immediately following 9-11, the latter role earning her the nickname “Battle JAG.” She finished her active duty service as the sole legal adviser to the commander of Naval Base San Diego. “This balanced approach to the law prepared me for a new career of public service as your next Magisterial District Judge.” For her service she earned both the Navy Commendation and Navy Achievement Medals, as well as the Navy Volunteer Service Medal for her work with local soup kitchens, civic groups, and Habitat for Humanity while stationed in Washington and California.
Acri also cited her local community involvement which has centered around her three school-aged children, from scouts and PTA to sports and marching band. She has spent the last three years teaching Sunday School as a member of St. Jude’s Parish, while volunteering with her children at the church’s annual International Fest. Currently she serves as Auditor for Wright Township. Her plans as a full-time judge include working with schools and civic groups to raise awareness about issues such as drug addiction and domestic violence which threaten the safety and security of an otherwise peaceful community. “My goal is to bring a proactive, fresh approach to the bench, and hopefully prevent problems before they get to the courtroom,” she concluded.
Wow. The Republican party used to be a party of real men, not wussies.
And to hide behind Gabby Giffords who was shot at a town meeting is the height of hypocrisy.
These are the Republicans who send 1% of your kids to war.
These are the Republicans who vote again gay marriage and transgender protections but are silent about their family member who just happen to be that persuasion.But if they do come out, then they back off.
These are the same REPUBLICANS who block immigration reform and want to throw out all illegals except for the ones raising their children, mowing their lawns, and cleaning their houses.
This guy plays the Gabby Giffords card essentially insulting his constituents and acting like, well a little wussy.
Here's what Gifford said,
"As a member of Congress, I believed that listening to my constituents was the most basic and core tenet of the job I was hired to do. So I was a little surprised yesterday to hear Congressman Louie Gohmert invoke my shooting as a reason not to face his constituents at a public town hall.
I was shot on a Saturday morning. By Monday morning my offices were open to the public. Ron Barber – at my side that Saturday, who was shot multiple times, then elected to Congress in my stead – held town halls. It’s what the people deserve in a representative.
So to Congressman Gohmert and others who are abandoning their civic obligations, I say this: Have a little courage. Face your constituents. Hold town halls."
The Congresswoman said "hold town halls."
I say to the REPUBLICAN Congressmen like Little Louie, "GROW SOME BALLS".
