Keep Judge Kane

Staff Writer
Pawhuska Journal-Capital

Judge M. John Kane is a lifelong resident of Osage County. He graduated from Pawhuska High School and subsequently graduated from Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma Law School. He has had the privilege of practicing Law with both his dad and his grand-dad in Pawhuska. Additionally, he has served Osage County as an Assistant District Attorney, as well as Administrative Law Judge, both while maintaining a law practice. Since 2005, he has served as District Judge for Osage County.

From 2013-2014, Judge Kane served as President, Oklahoma Judicial Conference. Currently he serves as a member of Oklahoma Court on the Judiciary—the body that judges other Judges. He is also Chairman of the Osage County Community Sentencing Planning Council. Further, he is the presiding judge over all judges in northeastern Oklahoma.

Judge Kane has been married to his wife, Cyndi, for 28 years. They have been blessed with four terrific children.

Judge Kane has served Osage County for the past nine years with honesty, fairness, dignity of character and respect. Why would we want to replace a Judge of this caliber?

Personally, I have known Judge Kane for thirty years and worked with him while I was a Child Welfare Worker, Child Welfare Supervisor and DHS Osage County Director. He was caring and honorable in all his dealings with our Osage County children.

On November 4, 2014, I urge you to vote for the man best suited and most qualified to serve us as Osage County District Judge — Judge M. John Kane.
