The Transylvania Times -

Impartial Judges


February 27, 2017

Imagine this - my rich neighbor puts up a fence over the line onto my property. We go to court and the rich guy has contributed to the judge’s election campaign. What do you think will be the judge’s ruling? Should we even have to consider such a situation?

Non-partisan elections for judges are the best way for an independent, impartial justice system. I liked Rep. Cody Henson’s reasons for non-partisan school board elections and hope he will withdraw his bill to change those for judges.
