Well-known judge up for reelection
April 3, 2009
Don’t be squirrely, vote for Shirley! But seriously folks, Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Shirley Abrahamson is up for re- election this spring, and she is definitely a judge we want to keep.
She has been our Chief Justice since 1996, and in that time has been named one of America’s “Top 100 Judges” for her leadership skills and nonpartisan attitude. She developed Mortgage Foreclosure Mediation to help Wisconsin families during this mortgage crisis, and has proven her commitment to protecting all citizens’ rights.
Democrats and Republicans across the state support Chief Justice Abrahamson for being an outstanding judge that puts the law above politics. I believe that Justice Abrahamson represents what a judge should be: a strong leader, unbiased and committed to the rule of law.
Don’t be treated like Moe treated Curly; on April 7, vote for Shirley.
