David W. Phillips, Union County Prosecuting Attorney endorses Rick Rodger as the next Union County Probate and Juvenile Judge

As Union County Prosecuting Attorney, I know that a good judge must have the proper judicial temperament, a strong work ethic, be firm, but compassionate and have a deep understanding of the law and how it should be applied. I can attest that Rick has those qualities necessary to serve the people of Union County as the next Union County Probate and Juvenile Judge.

Rick’s broad range of experience, both as a private attorney and as an assistant prosecuting attorney, gives him the depth of legal knowledge necessary to effectively serve as Judge.

I wholeheartedly endorse Rick Rodger for Union County Probate and Juvenile Judge and ask that you join me in voting for him March 17, 2020.

Former Chief Assistant recommends Rick Rodger for Judge

I received the following from Terry Hord, former Chief Assistant Prosecutor for Union County, Ohio: 

"Rick Rodger is a candidate for Probate Juvenile Court Judge in Union County.  He has appeared as an experienced attorney in the Common Pleas Court, Municipal Court and the Probate and Juvenile Court in several counties.  He has prepared and presented cases in the Juvenile Court concerning delinquency, unruliness, abuse and neglect and dependency.  In the Probate Court, he has dealt with issues concerning adoption, guardianship, mental illness hearings, and also appeared concerning wills and estates.  

Rick Rodger has a very good demeanor, is a well-balanced, experienced and competent attorney and would be an excellent Probate Juvenile Judge for Union County, Ohio.   I respectfully support Rick Rodger as candidate for Judge, and encourage you to vote for him in the up-coming Republican primary.   

  Terry L. Hord, Esq. 

Committee to Elect Rick Rodger for Judge, Tina Marshall, Treasurer, 19449 Wheeler Green Road, Marysville, Ohio, 43040
