LETTER: Kim Shaw brings love of Boone County to associate circuit judge race

Thursday, July 15, 2010 | 11:03 a.m. CDT

Our daughter, Kim Shaw, is a candidate for associate circuit judge, Division 5, and we would appreciate your vote for her on Aug. 3. Kim is a graduate of Hickman High, Columbia College and MU Law School — a very local girl.

A lot of Boone Countians aren't familiar with the inside of the courthouse or how it works. But should you, a family member or friend suddenly find themselves involved in a civil or criminal matter, you would want a judge who had dealt with your problems and could fairly listen to both sides of the issue before them. Over the 20-plus years Kim has practiced law, we've watched her appear many hundred times in Boone County courtrooms, the Western District Federal Court and in many county courtrooms in Missouri.

Kim is one of a few local lawyers who has practiced in all these courts. Her knowledge of the law is vast and fair. Don is a fifth generation Boone Countian on his mother's side and fourth on his father's side. Kim grew up with a deep love of Boone County and its people.

Please vote for our daughter on Aug. 3. She'll be a great judge, and you'll be pleased with your vote.
