Milwaukee, WI – At a forum hosted by the Milwaukee Bar Association today Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley laid out the choice voters face in the race for Wisconsin’s highest court.
“As a Supreme Court Justice for over twenty years, I’ve worked hard to keep partisan politics and special interests out of our courtrooms,” said Bradley. “My job is to stand up for the Constitution and ensure that everyone in Wisconsin always gets a fair shake.”
Bradley noted that her opponent Judge James Daley has been campaigning from one partisan event to another, while allowing that same political party to help fund his campaign. Just last week, Daley launched an attack ad suggesting that judges should support political agendas in Madison.
Daley has been taken to task by news outlets recently for his attempts to inject partisan politics into the Supreme Court race.
“When people come to court, I don’t ask if they’re Republican or Democrat,” noted Bradley. “Wisconsin deserves judges who are fair, impartial, and non-partisan. That’s exactly the kind of judge I’ve been for over 20 years on the Supreme Court.”
Bradley also highlighted her strong bi-partisan support from law enforcement throughout the state. “I’m proud to have the support of over 300 Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, District Attorneys, and Judges from every corner of Wisconsin.”
For the last two decades Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has served the people of Wisconsin on the Supreme Court. She was first elected in 1995, becoming only the third woman in the state’s history to win election to Wisconsin’s highest court. Prior to serving on the Supreme Court, Justice Bradley was a Circuit Court Judge for ten years in Marathon County.
Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices are elected in the non-partisan April elections for 10-year terms. Election Day is April 7, 2015.
