Experience Is Of The Essence
By contrast, Democrat Randy Seiler has a strong background in criminal law--and a pretty decent one on the civil side of justice as well. As a former U.S. Attorney, Seiler has prosecuted 70 jury trials and worked closely on more on 500 felony cases, including homicide, child abuse and rape. His tenure as a federal prosecutor included developing and overseeing civil, appellate, and administrative divisions within the U.S. Attorney's office. These multi-dimensional aspects to his background are attributes that Ravnsborg just can't match.
My inclination toward voting for Seiler has one more aspect to it. He's way beyond the point of seeking out this job as a stepping stone for higher political aspirations, i.e., governor. With no plans along those lines, Seiler can devote his time to business, not developing a base of political support. He'll be working exclusively at his job as Attorney General, and I have no doubt that he'll give us our money's worth.
