Letter: Bipartisan Group Encourages Re-election of Supreme Court Judge
To the Editor
In this time of partisan divide, we join together in our support of Justice Ann Walsh Bradley. We share her commitment to maintaining a Wisconsin Supreme Court that is fair, neutral and non-partisan. We strongly urge her re-election on April 7.
Each of us comes from a different background. We belong to different political parties. But we all know and respect Justice Bradley. She is intelligent, she has enormous integrity and she believes to her core that our courts must remain free of outside special interest influences in order to fulfill their role in America’s democratic system.
We also know Justice Bradley has deep Wisconsin roots. A native of Richland Center, she and her husband raised their four children in Wausau where they still live. She cares deeply about our State and shares the values we hold dear: hard work, family, community and service to others.
Justice Bradley has served the people of Wisconsin with distinction for 20 years, making tough but fair decisions based on the law and the facts. She is a Wisconsin leader of retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s non-partisan effort to enhance civics education and has worked tirelessly to increase understanding of how our courts work.
Justice Bradley has taken leadership roles in organizations working nationally and around the world to promote the rule of law. That’s exactly the kind of Justice we want – and deserve – on our state’s highest court. We hope you will join with us in voting to re-elect Justice Ann Walsh Bradley on April 7.
