WI Supreme Court: The Race Is On

Two letters today on the Wisconsin Supreme Court race:

Experience makes Ziegler best choice

On April 3, voters have a clear choice when selecting the next Supreme Court Justice.

Judge Annette Ziegler, who has been on the bench for 10 years, is the only judge running for the Supreme Court.

Judge Ziegler’s opponent, Madison immigration lawyer Linda Clifford, has never been a judge on any level.

Judge Ziegler is known to be tough on crime and has put hundreds of criminals behind bars for a total of over 1,000 years.

Judge Ziegler has been endorsed by a majority of Wisconsin’s sheriffs and district attorneys. Republicans and Democrats alike are backing her campaign.

In fact, every single law enforcement group that has endorsed in the Supreme Court race has endorsed Judge Ziegler.

Judge Ziegler has been endorsed by a majority of her fellow judges. Judges from every part of Wisconsin agree that Judge Ziegler’s experience and background make her the right choice for the Supreme Court.

Judge Ziegler is the clear choice for the Supreme Court. Please join me in voting for Judge Ziegler on Tuesday, April 3.

Clifford stands up for working people

With the spring election less then two weeks away many people are just becoming aware of the race for the State Supreme Court.

This race isn’t about who is a Republican and who is a Democrat — it’s a nonpartisan race. That means we have to look to see who the most qualified candidate is.

I feel that person is Linda Clifford.

Linda has 32 years of legal experience and is the only candidate who has ever argued a case in front of the Supreme Court.

Linda worked her way through college as a union steelworker. During law school she clerked at the Department of Justice. She also served as assistant attorney general and now is a full partner at a Madison law firm.

Linda will stand up for the rights of consumers and working people. Linda also has consistently stood up to protect the environment and take on polluters. Linda has earned many endorsements, including that of U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold and former Gov. Lee Dreyfus.

One of the few areas I can think of where a judge can legitimately “take a stand” for working people is eminent domain. Can we take this to mean Clifford doesn’t want the government taking people’s homes?

On April 3 I think the choice is easy. Vote for Linda Clifford — working with real people, solving real problems.
