More of the Ballot: Judges

Standard

Next on the ballot is voting for the Judges.  The ones on the ballot are all yes/no votes to retain in office or not. Since I haven’t heard anything negative about any of them, I intend to do the usual and vote yes. If anyone has heard otherwise, I would like to know.

  1. As you indicated is your practice, I typically vote “Yes” on judges unless I’m given a reason to do otherwise.

    However, I do have a friend that is “asking friends and family to vote out (no) for Judge K. Elizabeth Davis. She is on the ballot this year under Division 3. She was the judge for (my friend’s son’s) custody hearing regarding (my friend’s granddaughter) many years ago and has been the judge in most of the foster cases for (my friend’s other son/daughter-in-law). In my opinion, she has signed off on cases and made rulings not in the best of interest of the children and family.”

    I realize this is one person’s opinion and it’s someone you don’t even know but you asked to share if we’d heard otherwise, so I’m doing so.

    • Mark, Thank you, that is just the sort of feedback I was asking to have. These sort of situations do have a lot of personal judgment call in them, but these are also the opinions we should all hear and weigh. Based on hearing this opinion I am going to consider again whether to vote yes or no in this case.
