To the Editor:
Sometimes people don't receive the recognition they deserve for a service they have provided for a community for 36 years.
A good leader will often tend to keep a low profile and not flaunt their accomplishments in doing an exemplary job in their profession.
This happens to be the case with Magisterial District Judge Regis Welsh Jr.
Judge Welsh served 36 years on the bench as an outstanding jurist.
Most people will never have contact with the court system and, therefore, do not know the true value of what the community has really lost. A judge makes decisions every day that have a direct or indirect impact on all residents of any given community.
Judge Welsh has been a mentor to many of his colleagues over the years and a great source of knowledge to tap into.
Anyone in the legal profession would know Judge Welsh is one of the best legal minds on the bench and will be truly missed.
Enjoy your retirement, Judge Welsh.
