I would like to take this opportunity to voice my support and endorsement of Judge Nate Knust for District Court Judge in the upcoming election.  Judge Knust possesses all the qualities needed to serve the citizens of Cabarrus County.  During his career he has built a reputation of fairness, honesty, and unquestionable integrity.  Being a judge requires all of these qualities and more. It doesn't take but a short conversation with Nate to know that he is a caring individual who understands the great importance of his position and takes on that challenge with enthusiasm and dedication.  

Judge Knust is heavily involved in the community, not just as a judge, but as a advocate for all of the citizens of the county.  I have had a lot of interaction with him on committees and various other initiatives and I have been impressed with his positive attitude, broad perspective, and sound judgement.  He listens to all of the information provided on any subject before he makes a decision.  

Judge Knust is a strong supporter of law enforcement and understands the challenges they face on a daily basis. He understands the law, how to apply it, and makes fair and impartial judgment when all of the evidence is heard.  During my career I have learned that the best indicator of future performance is past performance.  Applying this perspective I know that Judge Knust will serve the people to the best of his ability and continue his efforts to make Cabarrus County a safe place to live, work and play.  I wholeheartedly endorse and support Nate Knust for District Court Judge.
